Pix 501 Remote Client VPN Problem

I am attempting to setup a config on a Pix 501 with Cisco VPN Client. I can get connected (authenticated) remotely with Cisco VPN Client, however I cannot seem to get any traffic to the remote LAN. When I look at the statistics in the VPN client the Bytes received is always 0. Below is my config. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Pix 501 Remote Client VPN Problem


Can you remove the below statement and do the testing.

crypto dynamic-map outside_dyn_map 20 match address outside_cryptomap_dyn_20

Also, it is highly recommended that you use a different range of IP Addresses for the VPN Client, that is a Pool of IP Addresses that is not part of your local subnet.



*Pls rate if it helps*

Re: Pix 501 Remote Client VPN Problem

I removed the statement, but still no traffic to the LAN from the remote VPN client.

I will try to create a new pool and see what happens.

Thanks for your reply.
