Here is the link: http://cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk583/tk372/technologies_configuration_example09186a00800a43f6.shtml

krishnakomiti, what I think he is trying to do, and correct me if I'm wrong, is to create a GRE tunnel from one router to another router, but have the two ASA encrypted the traffic with ipsec. This is a common configuration. One of the advantages of it is that the GRE tunnels permit multicast over it eigrp,ospf, etc.. If they used pure ipsec then they would be able to use multicast over the connection, since ipsec does not allow multicast.
