PIX 501 wont allow network computers to connect to other networks with Cisco VPN Client
Posted on 2007-10-15
Hi, I am having a problem with a cisco PIX 501 locking up when connecting to an outside Cisco VPN. Let me explain:
We have a PIX 501 at our office and about 3 of our employees connect on a daily basis to an outside Cisco VPN at one of our customers. The customer is running an Cisco ASA (not sure of the model). When one of us connects to the outside VPN, none of the others are able to connect.
If the person that was connected to the VPN disconnects, no one else can use the Cisco VPN client to connect to ANY other networks.
The person that was on the VPN connection will always be able to connect to any network via Cisco VPN.
The ONLY way to fix the problem is to reload the PIX 501, and then the next person to connect to a Cisco VPN has exclusive rights to use the Cisco VPN client until the firewall is reloaded again.
Please help, this will be a big problem when we move to VOIP
