asa esp policy

Unanswered Question
Feb 1st, 2007

Pix 6.3 had a fixup of esp-ike that worked with pat. It appears that this is gone as of 7.0 code. It only appears to work with nat?

Am I correct.

I have this problem too.

Version 7.0 will work with PAT. The fixup is gone, however.

Enhanced VPN NAT Transparency:

The fixup protocol esp-ike command is not supported in PIX Security appliance Version 7.0. This feature is suited for the PIX 501 and 506/506E platforms, which PIX Security appliance Version 7.0 does not currently support. The workaround requires that the client and head-end be NAT-T capable.

All you have to do is enable nat-t on both ends of the tunnel.

Please rate if this helps!

Thx, the issue is that we are going to the ASA5504 for home use and one user must access contivity through the home ASA. W/O ike/esp fixup, this is no longer possible.
