Today I setup a IPSec VPN on a ASA 5510. I was able to setup the DHCP for the client and get the client (Windows XP) to connect via the Cisco VPN Software. I'm having two general problems and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. Unfortunately, I don't have the configure and left work with this problem on my mind.

1) Everytime I establish a VPN connection from the client and do an 'ipconfig' I see that my default gateway is the dhcp address assigned. So, I manually changed the default gatewa on the laptop to what should be the proper gateway.

2) I can ping the VPN client via the assigned DHCP address from my internal LAN but my client VPN PC can't ping anything internally.

I did try to setup a default tunneled gateway, but that didn't help. I know for a fact I didn't get to setting up any NAT or anything else. I had no other directions and time was running short.

Do you have any suggestions or step by step configuration settings I could follow for setting up IPSEC VPN that will allow for internal DNS to be used, proper routing to internal LAN, general setup,etc?

Thanks. I can't wait to get back to work tomorrow and get back to the grind.
