VPN Tunnel is but no traffic flows

I have Cisco ASA5505 that I'm trying setup VPN access to and I'm having the hardest problem with it. The VPN tunnel connects and the logs show PHASE 1 completed. But whenever I try and make any connection to the internal lan I get nothing.

I have tried messing with NAT, and ACCESS-LIST but I still got nothing. Any help would be appreciated..

Here is the running config.

Re: VPN Tunnel is but no traffic flows

The address pool for your vpn clients overlaps your internal network:

ip local pool vpn_pool mask

Try changing this (and the corresponding nat0 acl) to something like (or or whatever, as long as it does not overlap any other network).

If you still have a problem, check the ASA logs (Does it show phase 2 as complete, does it show any errors about your test traffic), and check the counters (encrypt, decrypt) on both the client and on the ASA ("show crypto ipsec sa"),

Still nothing. This is starting to get frustrating. Its like the packets are entering the PIX but they aren't coming back through. I'm attaching some logs.
