I have been trying to get my remote access VPN enabled but for some reason I am unable to access my internal LAN.

My network has two firewalls. The PIX and an internal proxy server/firewall dealy.

Network (relevant) is something like this:

[internet] -- [pix fw] -- [proxy] -- [Internal lan]

Things that DO work:

-I can connect and authenticate to the VPN
-I can PING the EXTERNAL IP of the PROXY
-I can access the management page for the PROXY

Things I CANT do; but need to:

-Access any host behind the proxy (internal LAN)
-Use split-tunnel to be able to access the internet and use the VPN at the same time; would prefer to use the DNS servers located on the LAN

I've attached my configuration hoping someone can take a look to see what is wrong (if anything).

I do not see any logs (deny traffic) on the proxy when trying to access the internal host. This tells me the problem is on the PIX I presume.

IP Addressing...

PIX internal IP -
Proxy External IP -
Proxy Internal IP -
Internal LAN -
VPN Pool is - /29

Hope you can help; need any more info please let me know!
