We need the configuration from both sides of the tunnel. just displaying one side wouldn't give us enough information for a problem.

Most likely its not going to be a problem on the RVS4000 since we are have limited configuration/options we can change. if the other router is a enterprise device i would call tac and open a case. I had similar case where Cisco 871 had a asynchronous routing configured and was causing similar problem.

Looking at your traffic selection for the remote security group i see you using /12 which is a huge amount of traffic selection to send across the tunnel and would affect how Internet access to certain sites behind RVS. normally this will only include /24 maybe a /21 for larger networks.

Please provide more details so we can find a solution or point you in the right direction like opening a case with TAC.

Thanks for your reply, yes the other side is a ASA 5540, below is my configuration on there.

Local Network:

Remote Network:

Crypto Map

PFS Disabled

NAT-T: enabled

Time: 8.0.0 hh.mm.ss

Traffic Volume: 4608000

Ike Neg Mode: Main

Tunnel Group:

Ike Peer ID Validation: Required

Monitor Keepalives: 10 seconds intervals with 2 seconds retry

IPsec Protocaol: Enabled

Does this give you enough information or would you like to see other configuration settings?

Thanks again

Please give me copy of phase 1policy (IKE), phase 2 policy and ACL attached to your crypto map policy for the RVS4000. It’s best if we can see all information for tunnel.

You can mask public ip addresses.

What's your phase 2 key lifetime on RVS4000?

I know the problem will be over on IOS router configuration as we have limited amount of information we can change in the small business. it would be good to get a case started with TAC and after they review settings have them to 3 way SBSC and we'll work together to get this issue resolved for you.
