Remote Desktop over Cisco VPN


I have a Cisco ASA 5505, which has a remote VPN connection. When the end user connects to the VPN, they cannot access anything on the remote network, Files Shares or Remote Desktop.

Remote Desktop works fine locally on the network

I have attached the ASA config (with external IP's etc Starred out for security)

So the VPN is established but nothing goes through.....
Anything showing in the logs of the ASA?

by the look of your configuration "group-policy Remote39 " is used for your client VPNs. And I think you are intending for your clients to be able to access their local network.

What you have not done though, is to spcify what traffic to pass through the VPN. For this you have created an ACL (access list) however you have not applied this to your group policy.

I see that you have:
access-list Remote39_splitTunnelAcl standard permit

But this has not been referenced by your group-policy. To do that you need to type (in config mode of your Firewall):
group-policy Remote39 attributes
 split-tunnel-network-list value Remote39_splitTunnelAcl

And that should be it (I hope).

Please let me know if this does not work.
