Cisco VPN Compression

Unanswered Question

Hi everyone,

I have a cisco asa 5505 appliance. I have set up an ipsec connection for remote user to connect to it and all traffic is routed to the vpn gateway.

Therefore the vpn server acts like a proxy to the vpn clients. IP compression is enabled on the appliance.

I have been analysing the traffic traces (both the encrypted and unencrypted  traffic) and i noticed that some of the incoming vpn traffic to the client is not compressed.

My questions:

1) Does the incoming and outgoing traffic from the vpn client be always compressed?

2) Is that a way for me to monitor the compression stats?
