I am able from an external pc, successfully connect and authenticate locally with my PIX using the Cisco VPN Client software, shows that everything is connected. I am assigned a local IP address of 192.168.0.130 which is the first in my vpn pool. the internal ip of the pix is 192.168.0.1, I also have a pc behind the firewall with an ip of 192.168.0.40, first in its pool. I cannot, however, ping from 192.168.0.130 to 192.168.0.40 nor 192.168.0.1. I can however ping in a single hop the outside IP address of the PIX. From behind the pix i can only ping the inside ip but not outside or to the vpn'd machine. please help.
