VPN client access a spoke site-to-site VPN pix


Main office - Pix 501 - network

remote site - Pix501 - network

remote access VPN network

I can VPN into the main office and access resources, no prob

Once VPNed into the main office I cannot get to the remote site computers.

Question? How do I access the remote site via the main office VPN client connection?

Re: VPN client access a spoke site-to-site VPN pix


I think that with your current setup - you ain't gona be able to do it.

The two outlying networks will not be able to communicate with each other by going through a PIX because the PIX will not route traffic received on one interface back out the same interface. If there is a need for the outlying networks to communicate with each other, one would need a fully meshed configuration, instead of the hub and spoke configuration

ie yu need a concentrator that supports reverse routing somewhere in your design.

Thanks, Steve. Based on what you said I think I will try to do a remote access VPN connection to the remote site. I can't see any reason why that won't work. I'll let you know how it goes. Perhaps this is something that Cisco can implement in future release of the software.
