VPN site Tunnel and VPN remote user

Can you please help with the below query :-

We have recently installed a PIX 515 and using client 3.5.2 for remote users.

Our PIX has a VPN tunnel to our US office which works fine from the LAN, but I cannot see the US servers when I am offsite connecting using my VPN client. I can see the network, but not the US network.

Can this be achieved?

Unfortunately, the pix does not do redirects. Once a client get in an interface, the packets that are going back out the same interface are only reply to the original source, it can not be to some other destination.

You need a router, if this is an important function for you.

Thanks for the reply.

We have a Cisco 1600 router, would this be able to do the job?

Would it be able to redirect incoming remote users back across the PIX to another destination?

Sorry for the misunderstanding. If the router was the vpn server, then you can do this functionalitry you are after,. If the pix is the vpn server, then unless the other tunnel is on a 3rd interface, you can not have this redirection.

So if the router you meant was behind the pix, you still have the problem.
