Problem connecting to Cisco VPN through BEFSX41 with client software

    I have been unsuccessfully trying to connect to my office's Cisco router using the Cisco VPN client software (v.4.9.01 on a Mac) through my home Linksys BEFSX41.

    I can connect and authenticate, but then everything is dead... I can't mount shares, VNC, ping or get on the net.

    If I disconnect my BEFSX41 and go straight through my home cable modem, I have no problems.

    The settings on the Security/VPN page of the router have IPSec Pass-Through, PPPoE Pass-Through and PPTP Pass-Through all enabled. VPN tunnel is disabled... I don't *think* I need to set up a VPN tunnel with the BEFSX41 since I can access the Cisco from other locations through home routers that have no VPN support... and I *think* enabling the tunnel is for access to the router, not out of it.

    Is there something else I need to change in the router?

    Thanks for any help.

    Have you tried to allowing access through the routers firewall either DMZ or Port forwarding.
