VPN clients cannot access inside network

Unanswered Question
Nov 11th, 2008

I have a ASA 5505 that I am using as a VPN appliance. The outside interface is connected to the DMZ (172.16.2.10) and the inside to our internal network (10.27.1.12). VPN clients are assigned an address in the range 10.27.2.2-10.27.2.20. A 1841 is the router and firewall for the network. Recently the ASA lost power when a UPS went down and now VPN clients can no longer access anything on the inside network. Config is attached. Help.

Hi,

Do a show crypto ipsec sa and look for packets encrypts and decrypts. If you are seeing decrypts and no encrypts, then check the routing on the IP Address that you are trying to access through the VPN Client. Could be the end host that you are trying to access does not know how to route the packets back to the ASA for the VPN Client Pool.

Thanks for your response.

I tried running the show crypto ipsec sa and this is what I get:

There are no ipsec sas

I realized after I posted that I should have a connection active when running this command. Here is the results:

Result of the command: "show crypto ipsec sa"

So it looks like there are encrypts but no decrypts. What should I do now?
