L2L Connection issues

Got a bit of a strange issue here. We have a LAN to LAN up and going if we allow all IP traffic to pass, but as soon as we start adding restrictions it won't work. I wind up with the IP address of the remote device in the logs as trying to connect. I have an ASA on this end and they have PIX on that end. He swears he has nat disabled for the tunnel, we both have NAT-T enabled.

Anyone got any ideas?


Re: L2L Connection issues

You'll have to be a bit more specific. Where are you placing these restrictions? Are you using sysopt connection permit-ipsec? Example of the logs you are seeing etc.

Re: L2L Connection issues

I am adding the restrictions as an ACL in IPSEC rules.

I edited out the addresses that I don't want out there. But the address is the address of their PIX, the is the subnet that I am allowing and xxx.xx.176.22 is the address he is trying to connect to.

I one line of the ACL that I have here is:

access-list outside_cryptomap_260 line 2 extended permit tcp host xxx.xx.176.22 eq telnet (hitcnt=0)

What I am not clear on is why we are seeing the PIX address there instead of the addresses when they try to telnet.


Re: L2L Connection issues

This is not the correct way to filter the traffic in the tunnel.

Leave your cryptomap acls as...

access-list outside_cryptomap_260 extended permit ip host xxx.xx.176.22

and on the other end...

access-list outside_cryptomap_260 extended permit ip host xxx.xx.176.22

To filter the traffic you can either remove "sysopt connection permit-ipsec/vpn" and use your interface acl's to filter the traffic.

Another option in the ASA is to use a vpn-filter. This link is for remote access vpn but it works for l2l as well.

Thanks...I was starting to come to the conclusion that was the wrong place to set the restrictions, but I didn't know where to look.
