Why won' t you connect....

So I have a asa 5510 in my main office.  I have 4 other remote offices that connect witha 5505 through L2L VPN.  Have for  years no problems everything is perfect.

We have added a new remote office so I am adding another 5505 to this office.  I have everything set exactly the same but this new one won't establish a VPN connection.  Have a nice interenet connection but no VPN.  Is or was there some major change in ASA Version 8.2(5) that is causing a hicup.  All my other ASA's have version 7.2(4).....

What am I missing......

Result of the command: "show crypto isakmp sa"

There are no isakmp sas

Result of the command: "show crypto ipsec sa"

There are no ipsec sas

Why won' t you connect....

The above config looks OK at first glance. I assume your main site is just a replication of the same config for this site-site as the other ones you have.

When you introduce interesting traffic from the local subnet destined for the distant end, do you see the ISAKMP SA try to establish and fail? If so, the error message should be informative.

You may need to turn on debugging for the connection to get complete info - debug cry isa 7 (and maybe debug cry ips 7)

Why won' t you connect....

So other things came up so this problem got pushed back.......NOW its time to figure it out!!

Yes I have 4 remote sites all connecting to my main site L2L vpn perfectly.

I basicly copied and pasted those commands to the new ASA and changed the required info.

But can not establish any kind traffic between the new site and the main site.

From 5505 from New Site:

sh crypto ipsec sa
There are no isakmp sas

sh crypto ipsec sa

There are no ipsec sas

IF I try and ping the asa 5510 at my main site I recieve a 0% success rate.

I have remote access to this office so I can only currently make changes through the ASA from the asdm.

SO if I do a packet tracer from the 5505 to the 5510

Route-Look up is ok
IP-Options - ok

Nat - drops  (acl-drop) Flow is denied by configured rule.  But the rule is set the exact same as my others ASA????

Any idea what I should check? or do?
