Unusual VPN problem

Has anybody ever tried to turn off a crypto map and have your pix completely fail on you...meaning it no longer forwards packets anywhere to the internet even though your crypto map has nothing to do with your access-list on your outside interface. I had been testing various configs for the last 3 weeks without a problem..and now..I try to undo something so basic, and my pix no longer forwards packets..and sometimes switches to failover..but still does not forward packets to the internet. If I put the setting back in there..(even though no peer is assigned to the mapping)..everything is back up and running fine..its so strange..any ideas ?

Its a pix to pix config.

Re: Unusual VPN problem

The PIX is very picky about crypto stuff. You need to turn off the crypto map before you make any changes to it. Something like:

no crypto map mymap interface outside

Once you do that, you can change it all you want before you re-apply it.

Re: Unusual VPN problem

thats what ill try next. Funny thing is though, i never had to before. Doing that after all, brings down the VPN for multiple locations as well. BUt i will give that a whirl tonight.
