Watch Question

First, add this command to the existing configuration:

isakmp nat-traversal

Next, you would install the VPN client and create a new VPN connection.  See the attached file.

In the screen shot, x.x.x.x in the "Host" field would be the public outside interface IP address of the PIX firewall.  You will also need to know the VPN group password for the group named "vpnr3mote", which is referenced in the configuration command:

vpngroup vpnr3mote password ********

Click save and give it a whirl...

Thanks much it works
but i Cant ping my remote site network new question though
From what configuration you posted, I see that you should add the following command:

isakmp nat-traversal

There may be other commands you need to add/modify, but I won't know until I see the complete configuration.  You can try adding the command above and if that doesn't fix it, then please post your entire configuration (sanitized) and I'll take a look...
Oops, I already posted to the other question you opened up...getting ahead of myself...need more coffee...:)
