Hi,


You apply the crypto map on the wan interface.


Dont forget to identify the loopback interface as the source in you crypto-map


crypto map mapname local-address loopback 0

After following the information posted by dominic.caron, make sure that the VPN Devices have routing information for the loopback address. That is IP Connectivity.
