EasyVPN with a ASA 5505

Unanswered Question

The aim is to deploy 2 ASA 5505 and to create a VPN between them.

I saw ASA can operate as both client or server for EasyVPN.

On the VPN interface (ASDM) I find the check button to activate the EasyVPN option but it seems to be for the client side only.

How can I configure the server side on my main site? Can I link two distinct agencies to the the main site py EasyVPN ?

Is there a link or URL for documentation or HOWTO ?

Edit: for debug, how can I permit the Ping command to go throught my ASA 5505 ?

Thanks for your answers.

Hi Lionel,

first make sure both appliences have proper license for site-to-site vpn, known as VPN-3DES-AES or 3DES-AES, usually seen in "show version" as being enabled.

Here is an example for site to site vpn tunnel between two security appliences.


as far as allowing ping say from site a to site b internal hosts through that tunnel.

add in asa

"management-access inside"
