Anyconnect VPN clients on the same network as the local network or not

Last Modified: 2015-03-29
This may be a simple question for experts but I'd love to have a better understanding how the network setup between a SSL VPN client and the internal network works
If a SSL VPN anyconnect client is assigned by dhcp (configured on a ASA) an IP address  in a subnet different from the internal network (let's say Internal:,  VPN_pool, do I need to configure some static route in the ASA (...or in a L3 switch where the internal network in connected) in order to have the two networks see to eachother? or not ?  Would it be different for an IPsec client instead?

thank you for your help....
