Site to Site VPN

Answered Question
Sep 15th, 2009

Greetings All,

I am trying to bring standard site to site vpn connection between two sites. Site A and Site B.

Site A has a server (SeverOne)and site B WILL have a server (ServerTwo).

Now Im trying to bring up the VPN tunnel by pinging at this point a NON-EXISTENT server (ServerTwo) from the ServerOne.

SO the question is will this tunnel come up even though the server at site B is still not online? So far my tunnel is not passing phase 1.

Thanks in advance

I have this problem too.

Yes the tunnel should come up although obviously the ping will simply timeout. If the tunnel is not coming up then it sounds like a mistake in the config.

Hi,

If your applied Cryptomap ACLs and the server which you are trying to reach matches, the tunnel should come up even though the server is offline, if not, you have a problem in your configuration

Thanks
