Cisco ASA Client VPN was working but can no longer access internal network

I have a Cisco ASA 5505 that I had set up with client vpn access using Cisco VPN client.  It was authenticating to a radius server on a Windows domain controller and was working just fine allowing me access to my internal networks without troubles.  I got rid of the domain controller that was providing radius auth and I am the only one using it now anyway, so I changed the VPN to use Local accounts on the ASA for authentication.  I created a local account to use.  I am able to connect to the VPN with the local user credentials and authenticate properly. The problem is, I can no longer access the internal network like I used to.  The only thing I changed was how it authenticates ... from RADIUS to Local.  Did I miss something?  I can't ping any hosts internally.  Again, all I did was change how it authenticates the user.
