Remote VPN Cannot Access LAN

Answered Question
Apr 4th, 2010
User Badges:

My VPN terminates fine, but cannot access the LAN. The caveat is the LAN is a fully public /24 subnet.  I am unsure of how to NAT the LAN to access the VPN subnet and not disturb any other funtionality.  I have attached the configuration. 

Thank you in advance.

Correct Answer by Federico Coto F... about 7 years 4 months ago

The 2821 should have a route pointing to the ASA for the pool of VPN addresses (since the ASA is not the default gateway for the LAN).

This should do it.

So the tunnel establishes, but the remote users cannot access the LAN?

You have these commands:

access-list inside_nat0_outbound extended permit ip ***.***.149.0
nat (inside) 0 access-list inside_nat0_outbound

The ***.***.149.0 network should be the internal LAN that the remote users should access.

Introduce the command:
management-access inside

And try to PING the inside IP of the ASA from a VPN client.

Let us know.

  • Cisco Employee,

The configuration for ipsec is already correct. You should be able to access internal LAN on that public ip subnet.

If you are testing with ping, you need to enable icmp inspection as follows:

policy-map global_policy
  class inspection_default

     inspect icmp

Apart from that, I assume that ASA is already the default gateway for your internal public subnet. If it's not, you might need to add route for the ip pool towards the ASA inside interface.

I can ping the inside interface of the ASA, but nothing else. The default route for the LAN is a 2821 router, but the ASA internal and 2821 internal are connected.  I added icmp inspect, but that did not seem to do the trick.
