VPN connecting with MACs to Pix firewall, cant ping or browse

I have been able to get the Cisco VPN client for MAC to connect to the router (I believe it connects successfully, no error after connecting) but I cannot browse the network at all after that, can't ping, can't see shares, can't do anything after connecting. Tried all the SMB,AFP tricks I could find to connect to a windows server (inside the building MACs connect to everything just fine, with or without using AppleTalk)...That's where I am at a loss...

 

Do ports need to be opened on the router? do protocols need to be allowed? Do I need an additional server set up to authenticate the MACs instead?

isakmp enable outside
isakmp identity address
isakmp nat-traversal 20
isakmp policy 10 authentication pre-share
isakmp policy 10 encryption des
isakmp policy 10 hash md5
isakmp policy 10 group 2
isakmp policy 10 lifetime 86400

>PIX Version 6.3(3)
Very, very buggy version. Suggest update to 6.3(5)

you are only using DES/MD5. Can you use 3DES? Do you have a license?
Everything else looks OK. Is it only Mac's that have a problem? Are Windows clients working OK?

Windows clients working fine. Only macs have a problem. It shows as connected yet still cant ping anything. I dont see a probelm with going 3DES. I guess I could update, id have to get my hands on it. No Cisco login right now.
