We have a ASA5520 which vpn clients connect to. They are able to ping but nothing else seems to get thru. Only when i add a static route entry on the server they are trying to connect to which points to the vpn pool address range they are able to connect. What can be causing this??

From what is explained, i cant explain why it ping without the route. Your servers should have a route for the range allocated to the vpn client pool, classically the default route. If your default GW is not the ASA, then the router should have a route pointint to the ASA.
