L2TP behind a FWSM

I work for a company that is a small ISP. We have customers that we provide managed firewall to. I have one such customer that is using L2TP and PPtP behind my FWSM in a 6500. The VPN users authenticate inbound and I have no problem with the PPtP users but the L2TP user can't seem to login. Here is my ACL.

access-list 200 extended permit gre any host 10.100.212.138

access-list 200 extended permit tcp any host 10.100.212.138 eq pptp

access-list 200 extended permit udp any host 10.100.212.138 eq 1701

access-list 200 extended permit icmp any host 10.100.212.138

access-list 200 extended permit esp any host 10.100.212.138

access-list 200 extended permit tcp any host 10.100.212.138 eq 1701

access-list 200 extended permit udp any host 10.100.212.138 eq 3389

access-list 200 extended permit udp any host 10.100.212.138 eq isakmp

access-list 200 extended permit udp any host 10.100.212.138 eq 4500

Any suggestions?

Re: L2TP behind a FWSM

I see that you have the necessary ports open for PPTP, L2TP and IPSEC.

Is 10.100.212.138 the server that your customer is terminating the L2TP Tunnels. What about the ACL applied on the inside interface, is it permitting L2TP. What happens if the customer bypasses FWSM with the client, does it work. Also, are all L2TP Connections failing or is it only one user.

What code are you running on the 6500 and FWSM.

Re: L2TP behind a FWSM

Thanks for the reply. I do not have any ACLs on the outside. I am double NATing is that an issue?

Here are my software versions:

s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF4.bin

FWSM Firewall Version 2.3(2)

FWSM Device Manager Version 4.1(1)

Re: L2TP behind a FWSM

Which traffic are you double NATing?

Are you doing L2TP or L2TP/IPSEC. If you are doing L2TP/IPSEC, then you may want to make sure that you have all the patch installed from Microsoft to support NAT and also enable NAT-T Support on the VPN Server.

Also, What happens if you bypass the FWSM, does the same client work.
