How can we setup access to manage the pix (ssh and asdm) over a vpn client connection? We have given access to the pix via ssh and asdm to the VPN sunbet, but cannot access the pix. The commands we entered are below:

ssh outside

http outside is our VPN subnet

Any ideas would be great. Thanks

Yes, we are using split tunneling. The subnet for the inside interface of the pix is We can get to other devices on that same subnet (webservers, dns, etc) using the vpn client, but cannot access the pix with SSH or asdm. We have looked at the syslogs, but do not see anything out of the ordinary.

Did you try the management-access command?

Currently we have this in our config:

http server enable

http inside (tried both inside & outside)

management-access inside

This might be a stupid question, but have you tried ASDM/SSH from the inside (normal LAN users)? just to make sure all is well (Crypto keys, ASDM image etc.)

Yes we have. We can both SSH and ASDM access to the Pix from the "inside".

Yes, it does terminate on the outside interface.
