I have a cisco vpn conentrator 3005. i can connect to via vpn just fine from the cisco client software but i cannot ping any local ips or any server names over the vpn. i do have the split tunneling turned on but cannot figure out why i cannot ping or browse network folders.

Can you check and confirm if the IP subnet of the client is same as the IP subnet of the network behind Cisco device; if yes, this is the problem. You would need to change the IP subnet at one of the ends.

Also, I would like to check if there is a firewall on the local machine which is interrupting with the traffic flow and finally you have allowed traffic on the concentrator to the remote users.

Thank you.

so what you are saying is if my local servers in my office are 10.0.1.1/24 my vpn clients have to be like 10.0.2.1/24????????

That is correct; they both cannot be 10.0.1.x/24

Thank you.

Sorry for the confusion; remote user access configuration is done on PIX/ASA not on concentrator.

Have you ensured that the client and network subnets are different.

Thank you.

No this is not what I meant when I specified that the remote clients should be on different subnet. Let me clarify:

Let's say a client "A" connects from home; he is having a Linksys router and the network he is on behind linksys is 10.0.1.0/24.
Noe let's say the user wants to create VPN to concentrator; he does that and as the network behind concentrator is also 10.0.1.0/24; he would successfully get connected but there would be no packet flow.

So, you need to change the IP subnet at one of the ends; normally we would change subnet at the Linksys end as it is easy to implement [but if you wish you can also change the IP subnet at concentrator end].
Please revert the virtual IP pool for the remote user on concentrator back to the range you had specified earlier [10.0.1.x]

Thank you.
