Deny icmp src inside: dst outside (type 0,code 0) by access-group "inside_access_in" [0x0,0x0]

The VPN pool is using and the inside LAN is I am connecting to the WAN interface and the SSL VPN connects with no problem. Any suggestions?

Hi Mike

Could you post the config (minus any sensitive info).

The access-list inside_access_in is blocking the traffic. Is there an access-list on your inside interface.

Like Jon said, if you could post the config. It will help out.

Also, can you do send the output of the following, if you cant post the config.

sh run sysopt

sh run nat

If you were going to allow this traffic in the acl you need to write it like this, yours is backwards.

access-list inside_access_in extended permit icmp

The way you currently have your inside_access_in acl written, you are pretty much stopping all traffic originated from the inside. Is this what you want? I recommend removing the acl entirely.

Please rate helpful posts.

Thanks, that fixed the problem. I had to also create a rule on the access-list outside to let the traffic out to the VPN clients. Many thanks for your help.
