Now i am getting connected to the mai site through teh IPSec VPN,and the remote PC also getting the IP address,and able to access teh ain site inside network.Now the remote PC user wants the Internet access also simultaneously.For which I have to enable the split tunnel.How to do this?If I enable the Split tunnel....then accessing the internet from the Remote PC How tthe internet traffic will flow?

Hi Venkat,

You do not realy have to provide split tunnel if you want RA clients to use your internet via the ASA while VPN into your network personally I do not recommended unless is necessary. With split tunnel simply the intenet traffic will not cross the IPsec tunnel but rather will be handle by the users regualr internet traffic , RA VPN users internet flow simply does not cross your Firewall.

Split tunneling


On the other hand if you want to have more control of RA VPN users internet access you can configure your RA tunnel group as full tunnel, thus the internet traffic flow RA users will be handled in/out through the ASA applience.
