Cisco ASA 5520 Remote Access VPN - Windows 7 VPN Client - VPN established but doesn't work with split tunnel enabled

Hi,

I have configured our ASA 5520 (v8.4.1) to act as a VPN terminator using L2TP/IPSec with clients using the standard Windows 7 VPN client app.

I've setup what I think are the correct NAT rules, PAT'd the RA-VPN pool object to the external network and enabled hairpinning on the ASA. Everything works as expected when the Windows VPN client is set to open a Full tunnel - the tunnel is successfully established and I can access resources within the network behind the ASA. Also, when I browse the internet on the remote client - the traffic is routed through the ASA and appears to the world as if it originated from behind the ASA.

Things stop working however when I set the Windows VPN client to set up a split tunnel (by unchecking the "Use default gateway on remote network" setting of the VPN profile's network settings. When I do this, I CAN still establish the VPN tunnel - it gets the correct IP address, and when I browse the internet on this computer, it accesses the web using it's local internet connection (which is OK as this is what I expect with a split tunnel). HOWEVER, it can no longer access any resources behind the ASA - it doesn't seem to want to route any "internal VPN" traffic down the tunnel

I have configured the following on the ASA:

In the DefaultRAGroupPolicy, I have set the split tunnel policy to "Tunnel Network List Below" and then selected an access list I created that contains the subnet of the internal network (i.e. the network behind ASA). I have also enabled the "Intercept DHCP" setting for MS VPN clients.

access-list Split_Tunnel_List standard permit x.x.x.x 255.255.255.0 (sanitised the IP)

group-policy DefaultRAGroup attributes
...
 split-tunnel-policy tunnelspecified
 split-tunnel-network-list value Split_Tunnel_List
 intercept-dhcp enable
...

Any help that anyone could give would be most appreciated

Regards

An update...

When I open up a VPN connection with my iPhone using the Cisco VPN client built into iOS (v8.0.2), it works exactly as I expect it to - it can open up the VPN connection successfully and can access internal resources behind the ASA. Also, when I browse the internet, it doesn't route the traffic down the VPN tunnel, but just uses the local WIFI connection that the iPhone is connected to.

if you route add the network behind the ASA can you talk to it?
