Re: VPN connection works, but cant access inside network.

Your configuration does not show any access list, please check your access list for any specific deny statements.

You might look into enabling NAT traversal, it doesn't look like you have it enabled.

You can do this through the PDM under configuration/vpn/policies. or in the command line with syntax as follows: isakmp nat-traversal 20.

Good Luck.

I had the same issue and follow your suggestion and put the nat-traversal 20 line and it works.

Can you tell me what that command does?

Thank you much.
