Re: Remote VPN issue

1) Use a seperate IP Subnet for remote VPN connections

2) You need to add the VPN subnet to your no-nat rule, acl 110

3) You will not be able to ping the inside IP of the PIX - this is normal and by design.

4) If you want to access the remote site over the IPSEC tunnel you need to enable same security traffic.
