I have a win 7 starter minibook with the latest Cisco VPN client.
Using the Cisco client I can connect to the ASA, but can't pass traffic.
I turned off the firewall on the minibook, I have tried all of the adapters on the minibook also.
Does anyone know how to make this work?

Can you be more specific about "can't pass traffic?"

Can you ping by IP address?  With the VPN connected, can you...

a. ping something on the public Internet via IP address (try 8.8.8.8)
b. ping the inside IP address of the ASA, again by IP address (not name)

Did you do some debugging on either side of the VPN? If you do a "show crypto ipsec sa" on the firewall, do you see any packets coming in? On the client, are the configured inside addresses routed into the VPN?

1.  Yes I can ping to the public network from the clinet.
2.  No I cannont ping any address on the private network.
3.  If I do a "route print" from the client I do see the private network.

What about show  ip route on the ASA?  Do you see the VPN client?

I'm assuming that other VPN clients are working OK... is this true?  Can you validate that the minibook is picking up all the same IP/DNS/etc. info as the working clients?

Do you have priv access to the ASA?  Have you tried pinging the minibook VPN client IP?

Yes, other windows 7 clients are working fine.  As I said I connect to the ASA fine with the Windows 7 starter machine.  I just can't pass traffic.
The mini book does get the same ip/dns config of the working machines.
If I do a show crypto ipsec sa I do see the mini book client.

Any other ideas?

What services need to be running on the windows client for this to work?
Remote Access Connection?
What else?
