RealVNC over VPN tunnel

Unanswered Question

I have an ASA 5510 which we use for remote access VPNs. I have to be able to VNC onto remote systems while they are connected to the VPN. Can someone point me in the right direction on where to set that up? Is it opening a port? Is it adding an access-list?

Any help is greatly appreciated and please bear with me as I am very new to ASAs....

Once you create the remote client VPN, by default you will have access to all the inside networks, provided that the VPN ip pool is added to NAT 0.

You can optionally further secure this by applying an ACL to the remote client group.

Here you can find a bunch of info on how to configure ASA in general and Remote Access VPN in particular:

To restrict remote access traffic only to particular traffic:

Please rate if this helped.

Corinne - assuming that the remote VPN clients can connect to the VPN and pass traffic, and if the remote clients are using Windows XP, you will need to open tcp port 5900 on the client firewall for VNC to work properly.
