Cisco 2611 Dynamic VPN

Unanswered Question


I am trying to setup dynamic vpn on our cisco 2611 router but not able to get it working. I am able to connect and established the vpn tunnel but cannot access anything with in the LAN (not able to ping either). Here is the error. Thanks

I see you have a route-map configured to bypass NAT but it is no applied anywhere. Remove the existing ip nat inside command and replace with one that has the route-map in it. For example:

"ip nat inside source route-map nonat interface fastEthernet FastEthernet0/0 overload"

After you do this, disconnect the VPN Clietn, do a "clear ip nat translations *", log back in and see if you can ping the LAN Addresses.

Well, for your traffic from the LAN to go back to the VPN Client pool of IP Addresses, you need to bypass NAT.

So, you need to remove the existing "ip nat ..." configuration and configure the one that I had posted in my previous post.

That statement will make sure that NAT is bypassed only for VPN Client and all other traffic will get NATTed. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.

Interesting. Can you add this statement to your extended access-list and let me know if it works. Make sure the statement is before your Deny any any statement.

permit ip

That acl allow me to ping successfully but still can't access anything inside the LAN. Also the public interface respond not the inside interface.


Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=804ms TTL=255

Can you post your current configuration from the router. Also, did you do a "clear ip nat translations" and test the VPN Client.

Once you are VPNed into the router, can you post the outputs of "show cry is sa" and "show cry ips sa" when you try to access something on the LAN.

Ok, I still dont see this line configured as per Previous e mail.

permit ip

The reason I ask you to do this is very simple, I dont remember the exact version, but IOS used to behave in such a way that after the packets are decrypted on the router, if there are any ACL applied inbound, the traffic will be inspected against the ACL. Since, you are not allowing permit ip explicitly on the ACL, traffic could be very well decrypted and denied by the ACL.

Great! :-))

Since we enable to is this secure? Well, in my world, I would consider it less secure but I have seen people argue both ways. So, if you think this is not secure in your environment, I would upgrade the chassis to a 12.4 Mainline code and then there should be no need to configure this ACL. I know the bug was fixed in some 12.3T Train but not sure which one. 12.4 should address this behavior.

Also, if you dont mind, can you let the forum know that the response resolve the issue, so it is beneficial for others when they run into similar issues. Thanks!
