I have a weird problem with our Branch to Branch VPN. Please find details below

1. Details:

* Site 1 wants to use a oracle web based application hosted at Site-2. VPN is set and both the sides can ping each other but Site-1 cannot access the oracle application.

2. Troubleshooting

a. Can ping the IP of the application server at site-2 (

b. Added a hosts entry at Site-1 client PCs, can ping the domain name of

c. In the browser when typing the IP or the hostname of the application server gives the following error:

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"

The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

Appreciate if someone can assist me in this. Attached diagram and running-config file.

Hello Sarf,

Do you have a proxy server configured in your browser? If so then try bypassing the proxy for this site.

Also try downloading httpwatch (for IE) of firebug (for firefox) and you might be able to see if there is another reason for it failing (ie it's redirecting or pulling content from another subnet).

I'm not sure if this would help, but you could try to put "inspect http" under your policy map.
