I have done a quick search through documentation for ASA (not only 8.0 but up through the most current versions) and I find that the closest that ASA comes to processing GRE is in its support for PPTP protocol (which uses GRE).

So I believe that the answer to your question whether ASA supports GRE is no.

He simply mean what you are trying to do on ASA is not supported

5505 ASA GRE

Hi,

ASA is a fundamentally a security appliance. So it doesnt support a lot of general IP routing features like PBR, dual default routes. and wide range of other things. ASA's dont support GRE as you need to create a Tunnel interface in order to run GRE. In fact you cant even create a loopback interface on a ASA.

The simple solution would be to plug a router into the ASA. choose a 2800 or a 1921 or some router like that and creat the GRE tunnel on that and just allow IP protocol 47(GRE) on the firewall to pass through..

Please rate and mark the question as answered if this helps.

Hope this helps
