Cisco Pix 506 VPN -

Hi there
I currently have a Cisco Pix 506 device which has site-to-site vpns to multiple sites across the world. It also terminates Client vpns to that device. Now, one of the vpn users requires access connecitity to another site through the vpn client and across the site-to-site. The problem is, there is no reverse-path defined on the other site to direct back to the vpn subnet on the local router and there is no way to add one.
Is it possible to NAT a clients vpn address to the local lan ip so when it is sent to the other site it can return.

Any questions please let me know.

Thanks for your time.

To clarify:

Q. Which devices support PIX 7.x?

A. PIX 515, PIX 515E, PIX 525, PIX 535 and all of the Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA 5510, ASA 5520, and ASA 5540) support software version 7.x and later.
The PIX 501, PIX 506E, and PIX 520 Security Appliances are not supported in software version 7.x.

Though it seems there are 'creative' ways to get to 7.0x : http://www.techexams.net/forums/ccnp-security/16730-cisco-pix-506-a.html
But I don't know if you want to go that far.......

And because it's almost getting end-of-everything: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/vpndevc/ps5708/ps5709/ps2030/ps4336/prod_eol_notice0900aecd80731dfa.html

You might want to consider to get a new(er) one.

Agreed. It isn't possible with the device you currently own.
