All, When we VPN into our network, we can no longer get to the internet. We can access all drives and servers in our network, but we can't get to the internet, until we disconnect from the VPN connection. How do I fix this? BTW, we are on a PIX 515 with 6.3(3).

You must set up split tunneling in the pix.

access-list split-tunnel

vpngroup split-tunnel split_tunnel

So if the tunnel group name is vpngroup, the networks you want to vpn to are and, and the vpn client subnet is then...

access-list split-tunnel

access-list split-tunnel

vpngroup vpngroup split-tunnel split_tunnel

Since you didn't provide enough info, here's the best guess: Looks like the route to go out to the internet FROM your work network is either not set or intentionally disable while connecting via VPN. And from your home network (or whereever), while connecting via VPN, the pix is not set up to do split tunneling, therefore, you can't get to any other network, including internet(from your location) once you are on VPN.
