Chetan, it is possible that your firewall is configured as transparent mode - or context? for which vpn is not supported..

or perhaps your user credentials used to administer firewall does not have proper priviledge for those commands?

can you confirm above is no the case, post the output of " show firewall " and confirm you have full admin priviledge to the firewall.

unfortunately there is no VPN support or dynamic routing support for multiple context.


Unsupported Features

Multiple context mode does not support the following features:

•Dynamic routing protocols

Security contexts support only static routes. You cannot enable OSPF or RIP in multiple context mode.
