Unanswered Question
Feb 6th, 2008

Out-of-the box configuration. Changed the internal ip range, DHCP pool and ASDM config. Then I ran the VPN wizard to connect a VPN client. I cant establish a tunnel what so ever. Find attached the config and the log.

Thank you in advanced for you help

Thanks for your quick response. I've tried to disable xauth already but no luck.

based on your configuration, you have to set the group name (in the cisco vpn client) to

is that really what you want?

you also don't have nat-t enabled, which might be causing issues.

if you don't want xauth, just add that last line under the tunnel-group ipsec attributes.

Hi Niko

Attached config is a mess, attach the config you made after analyzing srue's sample RA-VPN config
