I have resolved the problem. The gateway in the configuration of the hosts was not the right one.

I have just replaced the entry with the correct one an it works! The hosts have correctly answered to my request but they return the answer over the false gateway. Result I do not receive any answer to my ping...

I know it?s a basic error?

I actually want to start a new post but couldn't find where to do it so here goes....

I have a 6500 switch/router with a sup720 and IPSEC SPA from which I have configured a VPN to a remote site using the access method. Now I want to connect to another remote site in a hub and spoke type design, but I can't work out how to do this using a single WAN side port and IP address ???

I have worked it out !!!

You create another crypto map of the same name but with another ID ie crypto map WAN 20

and then add the new peer.

I hope this will help anyone else because it's not clear in the doco :>)
