5505 VPN to LinkSys WRV54G

Unanswered Question

Hello, I'm new to the Cisco GUI (ASDM) and trying to configure a VPN between A 5505 and LinkSys WRV54G. I setup the tunnel following the manual, however I do not see a way to check the VPN status or logs via the GUI.

Do I need to go back to the command line to check the status? Is there a way to see if the VPN is or is not connect via the GUI?

Are there any publications to help better understand the ASA 5505 and VPN configurations?

This seems even more odd (from cmd line view). I am looking at the config, but seems that when I setup a VPN via the GUI it's not complete. It appears to not work at all.

Please help if you have an experience with this new GUI on the 5505. I would like to use the GUI, but seems like I may be force back to command line if the GUI is actually broken?

Is the GUI broke? Does it actually work?

Yes...I see those, and I have setup a site to site VPN to talk to the LinkSys, however I have no clue if it's working or what the status is. How can I check the status? How can I make the VPN connect or does it just try by default?

I am embarrased to admit this...but configuring the new ASA router via the wizard, I later found that a default gateway was not set! It's working now:) Jeesh!!!!

Basically that was my problem with connectivity, however I'm still unsure about how to check the tunnel status via the gui...

Any help would be appreciated:) Thanks.
