VPN client to create second tunnel

Here is how my netowrk is setup

PIX 515 ( the configuration i send you is for this PIX)

> PIX has 3 interfaces outside, inside - - -

dmz -

I have VPN clients which this PIX assigns IP when they connect to it -



> site - site connections:


> PIX 515 is connected to a IOS router ( VPN tunnel) - network on that

site -


> PIX 515 is connected to another PIX 506 (VPN tunnel) -

> PIX 515 connected to NEtscreen (VPN tunnel) -



> Now from PIX 515 I cannot ping any of the remote site networks

Is there a way my vpn clients who are terminating on the PIX 515 can see the other tunnel networks?

Re: VPN client to create second tunnel


Cisco says this won't do. Incoming and outgoing traffic is not possible on the same interface of the pix-firewall due to the firewall-policy.

But there is a trick. Adding a static and a route for the remote networks overrides that firewall behaviour. But doing this you should be aware of security issues. For security reason you should then have a router with access-list in front of the pix that denys all traffic to nets 10.... incoming from the internet.

This is the only way i know to run a pix in hub and spoke in vpns.
