Re: VPN client 3.1 connecting to PIX 515

Check if the inside clients have their default g/w set to the inside of the PIX, or if not set to this and it is set to a router, check if the router has a

def route pointing to the internal ip of the PIX, or at least have a static route to the ip pool you assign to the client, via the pix inside interface.

Possible issue 1, is that you have an network card on the PC that has the same address range as your ip address of the vpn client pool. Do an ipconfig /release all, then reconnect if you have this issue.

Another one, is that your client is behind a device doing PAT/NAT, in its current code, the PIX doesn't support IPSec thru nat, so you have to bypass the NAT

device when you connect to the PIX via VPN.

Re: VPN client 3.1 connecting to PIX 515

My PC's are set to use a router on the inside as their default gateway. I have static routes on the router to send inside interface traffic (172.16.1.x) to the PIX inside interface ( and inside interface traffice (172.16.2.x) to the PIX inside interface ( My VPN client is not behind a NAT/PAT device as I have connected my PC to the outside network of the PIX for testing.

I think you are missing a static rule.

Something like

static (inside,outside) CallcenterRwell CallcenterRwell netmask 0 0
