Remote VPN help

I am setting up a remote vpn connection for some of my users to connect to our shared servers from home. The internal network on the trusted side of the firewall is When i setup the remote vpn to give vpn users Ip addresses from this range everything works fine. However I want to have remote vpn users on a seperate range because i anticipate a large number of remote users in the future.

When i setup the remote vpn ip pool to a range say i can connect to the VPN but I cannot access the servers behind the firewall. I tried to add a policy for those users using ASDM but it still does not work.

Can someone please help me?

Thank You

Re: Remote VPN help


Check the following:

1. Does your internal network(s) know where to route the packets destined for Since the pool of ip addresses is being assigned by the pix to the VPN Remote Users, make sure that your internal routing routes the packets to the pix for the network.

2. Do you have any Access-List applied on the inside interface of the pix. If Yes, do allow traffic from your internal network to talk to

3. If your are doing NAT/PAT on the pix, make user that NAT is bypassed for traffic sourced from your internal network and destined to You can use NAT 0 to bypass NAT.

Please check the above and let me know if it works.

I hope it helps.
