remote VPN, SSL VPN stop working on ASA

Unanswered Question
Jul 2nd, 2010


Our ASA was working perfectly fine for remote VPN and SSL VPN but Not sure what happened it stop establishing remote VPN and SSL VPN sessions, we're working on ASA but now remote VPN, SSL VPN users can NOT logged in to the corporate network. I've checked every thing but I don't know what's missing. When I run show crypto isa sa command I get message no crypto isa, but when I compare the configs crypto is there. I've rebooted the ASA but no luck. User are able to logged in via secondary ASA.

1. Remote vpn try to initiate connection to

2. gateway ask for user name / password

3. after password no response and message shows on vpn client status bar establishing session ......................

4. show crypto doesn't shows any active/inactive session info

similar things are happening when I try to initiate a session via SSL VPN, it comes to authentication page, once I enter the login credential but does nothing.

ASA Ver 8.0.3

Please advice.

Do you have a pool or do you use a DHCP to give an ip to the clients?

Can you  attach the output of the debugs?


debug crypto isakmp 150

debug crypto ipsec 150

SSL (I guess that you are talking about anyconnect)

debug webvpn svc 255

Do you see any error in the client side?

Can you attached the logs of the clients?

8.0(3) is old code and there were many memory leaks in it.  The last 8.0(3) code was built over 2 years ago, and the first one was built in 2007.

You should consider either opening a tac case to address your specific issue, or if you don't want to do that, upgrading to a level of code that is more current and see if you still have the same issue.
