From outside using a windows 7 pc, I'm able to vpn into the Cisco PIX firewall and ping all internal addresses fine. I'm able to putty into a Linux box fine and ping the internet and all ip's from inside the network. But I'm unable to ping from the Linux box that behind the Cisco firewall to the vpn address that I was assigned on my windows pc with the firewall off from home. I'm only having issues with this Linux box even though the iptables/firewall are turned off as well. Please help!
