Dear all,

I just installed PIX 501E, configured vpn hardware client connect to UK's C3XXX concentrator. But inside Lan can not ping remote Lan. I used the software client is OK. May I know what is difference between Hardware client & software client. When software client connected, remote concentrator will push out their internal ip addr into software client, we can use the internal ip addr communication with centre. How about hardware client!

thank your help,

If the PIX is placed between your hardware client and the concentrator, you will need to configure the PIX to allow IPSec traffic through. For that you need to permit UDP Port 500 and ESP.
