Cisco vpn clinet status

We have Cisco pix and configured for site to client vpn. The client connects and everything is working fine but when i see the status bar of the vpn client from the client system i see local lan access- disabled and transparent tunnelling --disabled. I have checked the allow local lan in the vpn client 3.x properties. Then why am i getting local lan access disabled and what is transparent tunnelling and what should i do to make it active from the client side.

How many simultanious connection does the pix can handle in related to site to client vpn?

Thanks in Advance

Re: Cisco vpn clinet status

The maximum number of concurrent tunnels is model dependant. PIX 515R for example can handle a maximum of 2000 connections. This number is independant of whether the tunnel is Lan-to-Lan or from a remote client. Similarly, the 506 can handle a maximum of 6 tunnels. This information specific to your model should be available in the products data sheet.

I know it was a while ago since you posted this but did you ever find out why you get this client status problem ?

I am having the same problem but a cisco rep told me that is was because the stateful firewall option was on but it's not.

I might be wrong here but if I am not mistaken, transparent tunneling only appears when connecting from behind a firewall. The local lan access states the same thing here as well (disabled) but its fully up and running.

Still i have the same problem. Though i check the Local LAN access and give the timing, in the status i see local lan access disabled. I have not tried on the Latest Cisco Pix VPN client software.

Re: Cisco vpn clinet status

The Transparent Tunneling and Local LAN Access settings on the client have no effect unless these options are also enabled on the head-end device. You can use these with a 3000 series concentrator, but they may not be supported on the PIX.

Re: Cisco vpn clinet status

If you end up getting a response on related bugs or problems with PIX / VPN client limitations please let me know. We have been tracking down a solution for this issue for a while now and no answer has been found. We have a PIX 515e with a 506 (connected site to site, no problems) we also have clients using various ADSL connections etc, when we hit 8 ipsec tunnels we allow connections to the pix but it stops creating tunnels thus no network access.
