client connection problem

I have a VPN set up in office.

Clients are able to connect from remote site (behind another PIX;using private ip addres), but unable to ping or connect to any devices.

client's statistics shows

Encrypted Packets >0

Decrypted Packets =0;

seems like not receiving any vpn packets.

After i configure NAT (on pix) using public to private IP address, the problem was resolved.

like to seek advise on what to do, in order to allow clients w/o additional configuration on other PIXs.

Re: client connection problem

Doing nat is the right thing to do. Do you also encrypt the interesting traffic?

Re: client connection problem


do you see discarded packets in your client's stats?

In this case , il might be a problem with your default gateway.

When the tunnel is up , the default gw must be your VPN Adapater IP adress . Sometimes the default gw stays your lan connection's gw .

A solution is to force your lan connection's metric to 2 to force your VPN Adapter to become your gw.
