    Hi

    We have a small company that we can access through a PIX501 with our
    repective VPN software clients. However, as it is possible to contact any
    computer on the internal company net from the vpn-client, why can't we get
    any access to each other when for instance two vpn-clients are online? The
    internal net is 192.168.124.0 as the vpn-clients are getting adresses
    192.168.123.30 to 40.

    thanks in advance

    Fundamental design of the pix states that a packet coming in on one
    interface cannot leave on the same interface. There may be changes to this
    in 7.0.

    Becuase it would require sending the traffic back out the smae
    interface it cam in on - PIX does not allow this.
