ASA 5505 to VPN Client

I am very new to VPNs. I recently bought an ASA 5505 for the school district I work for and want to set up a VPN so I can access the network from home. I have tried setting it up myself to no avail. I really have no idea what I am doing or how to set it up. Any help would be greatly appreciated


Re: ASA 5505 to VPN Client

Re: ASA 5505 to VPN Client

It connected for me. Thank you for the help. The only issue I have left is not being able to surf the internet while connected. It is giving me a default gateway of instead of what the gateway should be Any suggestions?


Re: ASA 5505 to VPN Client

The default gateway will be the same as the ip assigned to the client by the asa from the vpn client pool.

To have internet access you must enable split tunneling or outside nat.

Split tunnel

group-policy attributes

split-tunnel-policy tunnelspecified

split-tunnel-network-list value split_tunnel

access-list split_tunnel permit ip

Outside NAT (public internet on a stick)

same-security-traffic permit intra-interface

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (outside) 1

Hope that helps. Please rate if it does.
