Do you have a 'dynamic' crypto map setup at one side? In that case only the side with the static crypto map can initiate the connection.

Please post more details about the setup.

What are the VPN terminating devices, IOS?

Are you using NAT-T?

What is the routing configuration?

The vpn terminating device is IOS.

I dont have the information if the vpn terminating is using nat-t, the only information about vpn terminating that I have are this:

crypto isakmp policy 4

encr 3des

hash md5

authentication pre-share

group 2

crypto isakmp key

crypto ipsec transform-set ZZZZZ esp-3des

crypto map XXX 11 ipsec-isakmp

set peer Y.Y.Y.Y

set transform-set ZZZZZ

match address AAAAA

ip access-list extended AAAAA

About the routing, I have a branch office that arrives via L2L until vpn and the traffic is forward to tunnel. In concern to the routing is okay.

Thank you
