vpn client connected to ASA but cannot do anything after connected.HELP!


I am struggled with this for last three days. I have a very basic case. My client wants to connect to my ASA using Cisco VPN client and connect to one host in my network ( This VPN configuration works and let me connect using Cisco VPN client. but I cannot go anywhere else after connected.

I cannot PING from client and cannot run any protocols (telnet, ftp etc.) to my host (192.,168.1.51). BUT I can run these protocols while I am on the inside network without VPN.

I verify the route exists in my core router (

“Ip route”

Your split tunnel acl is backwards.
