    Cisco VPN question

    I was posed this question and I'd like to know what you think.

    A customer network has one internet connection with one Cisco pix 501. They have two VPN tunnels configured: one is for remote clients and one is a site to site. The client are dished out a range of IPs that reside on the network proper (carved out of the DHCP range), say The site to site gives access to the network.

    the question is: Can the remote VPN users access the network directly or would they have to hop from one of the internal machines? In other words can I tunnel in and then out the same interface? I'm thinking not so much.

    Let me know if the description is too vague or if you need other information.

    Yes, you can. The VPN tunnel end point is actually a "virtual" interface. You can route traffic between these virtual interfaces. Doesn't matter if they use the same physical interface to communicate with the outside world.
