Subnet mask issues

SBSNetworks asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-09
I'm using PDM 3.0 to configure some VPNs on a PIX 501 (and it's more or less the first time I've done this, so go easy!) All is nearly well using the Cisco VPN software, (i just don't get the right gateway IP address) but I'm also trying to set up PPTP so that we can connect using Windows VPNs. Everything connects OK to the remote PIX, but only when using the Windows VPN, I get no gateway address, and more importantly the subnet mask comes up as rather than, meaning that I can't browse any resources on the remote network. I'm not so bothered about the gateway, just the subnet mask.

I can't find anywhere where I can change this - can anyone please steer me in the right direction?
