Can I use differnet ip pools for differnent vpngroup's on a PIX

I have a PIX running 6.2(2) code and the 3.5.1 vpn client. I can set up different vpngroups that use the same local ip pool fine. But if I create a second ip pool and assign a vpngroup to use the new pool they hang at the "securing connection" entry on the client.

Using debug I see that the isakmp portion authenticated but the ipsec authentication fails with invalid ip address.

Partial config:

ip local pool userpool

ip local pool adminpool

vpngroup vpnLand address-pool userpool

vpngroup vpnLand split-tunnel 102

vpngroup vpnLand idle-time 1800

vpngroup vpnLand password ********

vpngroup vpnallands address-pool userpool

vpngroup vpnallands split-tunnel 102

vpngroup vpnallands idle-time 1800

vpngroup vpnallands password ********

vpngroup vpnPHX address-pool userpool

vpngroup vpnPHX split-tunnel 102

vpngroup vpnPHX idle-time 1800

vpngroup vpnPHX password ********

vpngroup vpnTRU address-pool userpool

vpngroup vpnTRU split-tunnel 102

vpngroup vpnTRU idle-time 1800

vpngroup vpnTRU password ********

vpngroup admin address-pool adminpool

vpngroup admin split-tunnel 102

vpngroup admin idle-time 1800

vpngroup admin password ********

The vpngroup admin will not authenticate unless its pool is set to userpool. If I delete userpool then vpngroup admin will work with adminpool, but obviously the others will not. When I recreate userpool the others work but admin stops

Is this a supported configuration? I was told with 6.0 it was not. But with 6.2 and pdm2.0 it implies it does (at lease it lets me configure it that way).

Did you make sure that you have included both the userpool and adminpool in your nat 0 access-list ?

Hi. I'm experencing the same problem. Here's may NAT 0 statement:

nat (inside) 0 access-list inside_outbound_nat0_acl

Where do you insert the ip pool config?

Thanks. Shawn.
