VPN connects but no access to the LAN.

By dryflies ·
I have a pix 506e configured with inside as I want to configure an ipsec vpn to use and up and have assigned that pool to the vpn. DHCP is not provided by the Pix but by a win2k3 dhcp server. locally everything works fine. when I connect using the cisco VPN client I connect fine, everything says I am connected, but I have no access to internal LAN resources.
the ipsec pool is delivering an ip of which to me seems to say that I am no allowed to view resources below 192 in the 192.168.1.* ip space. Any suggestions?

PIX Config

by jpeoples In reply to VPN connects but no acces ...

If you're connecting to the PIX using the Cisco client then you really don't have the option to use an internal server for DHCP. The "Pool" must be a seperate subnet from the internal. Use the [nat] command to control nating from the pool to the internal network and [vpnpool] to control the options assigned to your clients. Hope that steers you in the right direction. If you need more help let me know.

so i should set my pool to be in the network and then set up nat to map that set of addresses to that actually sounds reasonable. I'll give it a try

on another network I have a /24 network and the pool is a range within that /24 and it works. the only difference I can see is the hardware. one is a 515e and the other is a 506e. that is why it was so confusing.

IP addressing and subnets

by jpeoples In reply to ok,

All the PIX's use pretty much the same IOS. Your /24 & /26 were probably both using .0 for broadcast so you may have just gotten lucky.

You should review your IP addressing tutorials. IP uses the first and last address of a subnet for broadcast traffic. Basically it's how machines advertise their presence to the network. If you are using an address of Z.Y.X.193/26 your broadcast addresses are .192 & .255. The same address (Z.Y.X.193) with a /24 mask uses .0 & .255 as broadcasts. A machine looking for traffic on .0 will not hear or respond to traffic found on .192 and vice versa. You can't overlap addresses between subnets and all machines within a subnet have to use the same net mask.

The action of attaching to the PIX with the Cisco client is your DHCP. All clients are issued an address when they attach. The PIX will handle the routing of the traffic from the clients to your secure interface dynamically. You just need to authorize it to pass through. The [vpnpool] command I told you about will allow you to give the clients the information you would normally hand out as DHCP options.

Let me know if you have any more problems.

ip addressing and routing.

by dryflies In reply to IP addressing and subnets

I have a fairly good knowledge of the OSI model. What I have trouble with is the cryptic terminology and language in the IOS.

here is my config with some changes to protect the guilty.

which gateway you using?

by sgt_shultz In reply to VPN connects but no acces ...

could this be that one where you need to check the box that says 'use gateway on remote lan?'
