ASA 5510 remote management via vpn client

Unanswered Question

I need to manage an ASA 5510 by remote using a Cisco vpn client.

I have a 7.2(1) an it's running. I logged into the vpn and ssh I can connect the inside IP of the ASA. I cannot ping the inside IP!

Trying the same scenario on another 5510 with ASA 7.2(4) doesn't work.

Any help?

Regards, Celio

Does your config have management-access statement anywhere?

in order to manage the ASA via VPN tunnel you need management-access statement.

typical statement

asa(config)#management-access inside

if management0/0 is your only management interface defined by statement under the interface you may need

management-access management

try these and let us know if issues.

Hi Jorge,

I tried different combinations of management-access.

Under 7.2(1) I have no such command and it works!

Under 7.2(4) I configured:

management-access inside

ssh RA-VPN-IP inside

and it works!

Thx for your help.
