    Hello,

    I have a unique situation. I am going to try and draw out my situation
    briefly. I have attached a PNG to make this easier.

    While looking at my drawing, here is my situation. I want both Client 1 and
    Client 2 to be able to use the SMTP service I have set up on the CSS. I
    cannot use the SMTP service from Client 2 but can just fine for Client 1.
    I can also use the service FROM SMTP 1 but NOT SMTP 2. So the packets
    coming from that VPN connection cannot use the SMTP service for some
    reason. Can someone explain this to me? I do not know how to turn on some
    debugging for this particular rule to see if the connection is even being
    made or not. I see hits on the firewall ACLs so I can only assume they
    are. I am very new to a CSS (about 3 hours now).
    I have pasted some css information below. The clients are using
    172.32.0.15 as their SMTP server. THANKS!

    Call Cisco TAC before your boss gets pissed and fires you. Seriously if you
    have a network down emergency dont fartaround in the USENET groups.

    I appreciate your advice but this isn't an emergency. This is something new
    I am testing.
