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?

I checked and it is shown in the config. Looks like it is enabed.
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

Any other ideas?

Thanks

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?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
