Linksys Rv042 VPN tunnel with ASA5505

Unanswered Question

We have a main office with an ASA5505 as the hub.  There are 4 remote offices which connect via point-to-point VPN and they use PIX501s. All works great. Then we need to replace one of the PIX501s and we chose to go with Linksys RV042.  This RV042 cannot establish connection with remote ASA5505 even though all the VPN parameters are exactly the same as the PIX being replaced.  All other PIXs continue to connect ok with ASA.  So is there a cmmand we need to clear old PIX-ASA connection on the ASA side? What are we missing?

thank you.

If all the VPN parameters are the same, the Site-to-Site VPN tunnel should establish between the Linksys and the ASA.

A common error, is that phase 2 PFS is enabled by default on the Linksys (usually disabled on the ASA).

Check the status of the tunnel on the ASA for this tunnel when trying to establish:

Phase 1 - sh cry isa sa

Phase 2 - sh cry ipse sa
