ASA 5510 8.0(2) WebVPN problems

Unanswered Question
Nov 27th, 2007


we have a fairly simple configuration running on our ASA and try to make use of the webvpn on occasion. The feature used to work great with 7.2, but after we upgraded to 8.0 we started having problems.

Basically an user (network admin) can log in through the webvpn interface (authenticated by a RADIUS server) and see the links to network shares we provide, click on them and at that point the user is promptedfor credentials again. upon entering them then message comes up that the access to the resources has been blocked due to security reasons.

Now to me that makes no sense whatsoever. I have already run the following command:

auto-signon allow ip auth-type ntlm

to try to prevent the second credentials prompt but to doesn't do anything.

I also tried to capture the webvpn traffic, according to the user manual, but now i have a zip file that contains bunch of files, I cannot read (except notepad, but that doesn't help a lot). Ethereal will not open the files. I couldn't get to display the capture in the browser as described in the manual.

can anybody give me an idea on what to do to troubleshoot this problem? Thank you very much.

I have this problem too.

Make sure the network share itself doesnt have any authentication configured. Check for thie inthe network share properties.

i wish it was that simple.

the permissions have not changed at all on the network shares. i can log in to the network locally and have no issues whatsoever accessing the very same shares I am trying to access through the webvpn.
