ASA 5505 webvpn no response


Im trying to setup WebVPN, however no matter what I try I cannot reach the HTTPS/vpn page from outside my network to be able to sign in to the ASA.

Setup is fairly simple - inside for devices / outside PPOE to modem

No matter what I try, I cannot get a response from the HTTPS server on the outside.

Thanks in advance

Re: ASA 5505 webvpn no response


Can you post a 'sh ip address'? In your config for vlan2 you tell it to use a group called ISP but your group is called BT.

Hi Matt,

Sorry, thats me just changing words before I posted the config to the net!

The group is indeed BT - PPOE to the outside works fine and all the devices can contact the internet ok

ASA 5505 webvpn no response

Assuming your routing is right via PPPOE, I'd guess you can't use that cert for both ikev2 and ssl.

Try generating a new trustpoint/cert, referencing that in your webvpn config.  (don't mess with ASDM_Trustpoint0 if that has working ikev2)

Better yet, do a 'debug crypto ca 255' when you try to connect and see if you are getting any ssl errors. If so, then generate a new trustpoint/cert and reference it in webvpn.

ASA 5505 webvpn no response

I generated a new cert, using a new trust point. I then went through the wizard again, but it still doesn't work.

Using the debug crypto command doesnt show anything in the buffer or console log

I would wipe the ASA and start afresh, but i've already done this once and it still doesn't work!!

I would run a packet capture to see if port 443 packets are making it to the interface.    If so, run a 'debug webvpn 255' to see what, if anything, is going on when the packets hit the ASA.

Re: ASA 5505 webvpn no response

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the suggestion. I started afresh and created a new cert via the command line. WebVPN now works on the inside interface, so I can verify that the self signed cert appears to be working ok.

debug webvpn 255 shows activity when I access it from inside, but nothing when tried externally.

I have also changed the port to 8000, however this makes no difference. Im starting to suspect that its my modem thats interferring, but I cant see how considering as I have no other connection issues.


Edit: I monitored the comms between the client pc and my ASA with wireshark.

The grey packets are where the request to the site started. The first 4 are with IE6, and the second with FF10

Re: ASA 5505 webvpn no response

I've still yet to get this to work, so I think I will just try to go down the AnyConnect route instead.

The only thing I have concluded is that the ASA is treating incoming 443 traffic as an attempt to connect to an internal source. If I leave the ACL off for 443 (i just had it on for a test) I can see traffic hitting the firewall on that port from the client PC I am using on another network. If I turn the ACL back on, it doesn't register any further activity.

I have checked that the ASA is set to bypass ACL's for inbound Clientless SSL connections.

My other thought is that it could be that I still have 256mb of RAM in the ASA, and that is affecting it in some way. I had to go back from 512 to 256 a while back as it seems that the stick of 512 that I was using was far too unstable and it caused the ASA to crash every day.

Has anyone any other thoughts on this issue?
