Cannot telnet ASA from remote through VPN

Answered Question
May 21st, 2009


I have set up a VPN between two sites using two cisco asa. The VPN works perfectly, but I cannot telnet, ssh or run ASDM on the remote ASA, i.e. if I am in LAN 1, I cannot telnet, ssh or run ASDM on ASA2 and viceversa.

Just for testing, the whole networks (LAN1 and LAN2) have whole IP and ICMP authorized on the VPN, but no way.

I can connect and do everything else between LAN1 and LAN2.

on the ASA1 I have tried both

telnet LAN2 netmask2 inside


telnet LAN2 netmask2 outside

What's wrong?


I have this problem too.

Just for the others who'll read this, the command is:

management-access inside

Nevertheless, thanks a lot because you pointed me in the right direction.
