problems with VPN and NAT

I'm running a ASA 5505 with IOS 8.4

I was trying to setup anyconnect ssl vpn and now it's really strange, i cant get it to work.

I'm able to connect to the VPN service, but no network at all. I cant connect to either local hosts or to the internet when i'm connected to the VPN.

Below is my full config (masking password & public IP).

Anyone have any ideas? Or where i can start troubleshoot?

problems with VPN and NAT

Tried a packet trace and this is the output:

It fails in the NAT section and then the result is:

(acl-drop) flow is denied by configured rule

Re: problems with VPN and NAT

Are you only testing with PING? If yes, then configure the folowing and also test with other services (http, ftp ...):

policy-map global_policy

class inspection_default

  inspect icmp

And for accessing the internet you have to configure either Split-Tunneling or NAT from outside to outside.

problems with VPN and NAT

Right now im concerned about why i even cant access local network resources.

I've tried adding the above commands but it didnt helt out

I do receive these errors in the log:

Asymmetric NAT rules matched for forward and reverse flows; Connection for tcp src outside:\admin) dst inside: denied due to NAT reverse path failure

Where 192..168.241.0 is my VPN IP pool and is my local network.

Re: problems with VPN and NAT

I just see it: You don't have any nat-exemption configured for your VPN-traffic:

object-group network VPN



object-group network LAN



nat  1 (any,outside) source static LAN LAN destination static VPN VPN no-proxy-arp route-lookup

Thanks, that solved the local network access.I still have problems with internet access now. I've checked my split tunneling but it still doesnt work, do you see anything wrong with split tunneling?

Your combination of default- and configured groups is a little bit strange but still should work. I don't remember if the old AnyConnect-client 2.5 had some special behaviour. So I would change that to the newest 3.1 release. If that works you probably have to use a public certificate to get rid of the certificate-warnings.

What do you see under secured routes in the client after you establish the connection?
