PIX VPN wont re-establish when peer IP has changed.

I have a PIX501 at a remote site (213.x.x.186).

I had to install a Linksys VPN router at another remote site and VPN between the two.

I configured the Linksys in my office on a static IP (84.x.x.14) and remotely configured the PIX, i got these working fine.

I have since installed the Linksys at the other remote site and changed the static IP (213.x.x.235).

On the PIX i reconfigured:

crypto map transam 1 set peer 213.x.x.235

isakmp key ******** address 213.x.x.235 netmask no-xauth no-config-mode.

On the pix "show crypto ipsec sa" shows:

interface: outside

Crypto map tag: transam, local addr. 213.x.x.186

local ident (addr/mask/prot/port): (

remote ident (addr/mask/prot/port): (

This output shows the connection to my office still, and the Linksys connected in the remote site will not re-establish a connection.

show crypto isakmp sa shows:

Total : 1

Embryonic : 0

dst src state pending created

I've tried clearing this entry with "clear crypto ipsec sa peer" and it will not disappear and reestablish with the new configuration.

Can anyone throw me some suggestions?

Re: PIX VPN wont re-establish when peer IP has changed.


When you do 'show cryptoo map' you should see something like :

crypto map transam interface

do a

no crypto map transam interface


crypto map transam interface

It should resolve the problem. Please do not forget to clear the SAs.

Re: PIX VPN wont re-establish when peer IP has changed.

Thanks for your help,

The issue actually turned out to be my boss changing the local subnet on the Linksys to be , when it was initially

I only changed the access-lists on the PIX but also needed to change local secure group on the PIX.

Thanks anyways mate.
