ASA 5525X - Multiple Outside Interface

Hello,

Question:

I have a pair of ASA 5252X for VPN Traffic, the interfaces are:

- Inside

- DMZ

- Outside - ISP1 - IP 1.1.1.1

I can have two "outside" interfaces, multiple ISP's for VPN traffic(Site to Site)?

- Inside

- DMZ

- Outside - ISP1 - IP 1.1.1.1

- Outside2 - ISP2 - IP 2.2.2.2

I need this because i have problems with only one ISP, so i need to install more one and in the remote peer add a second peer IP(for ISP2), so if the remote peer cannot establish the connection over the ISP1, he going to ISP2, it's possible?

Tks.

Rafael

Yes Rafael, it possible.

you need to configure SLA monitoring on ASA for the ISP failover.

And for the VPN add the second ISP ip as a back up peer on the remote device.

on your ASA where you have dual iSP, the same crypto map will be applied on both the interface.

In case if you need any assistance regarding the configuration let me know.

Configuration should look something like this:

interface Ethernet0

nameif outside

security-level 0

ip address 10.200.159.2 255.255.255.248

interface Ethernet2

nameif inside

security-level 100

ip address 172.22.1.163 255.255.255.0

interface Ethernet1

nameif backup

Important Information:

===============================================

** With the use of track ASA will keep on monitor the MPLS interface (outside in this example) with the help of ICMP packets. The moment it will stop getting the replies it will flush the primary route and start pointing the routes toward the back up interface.

** Crypto map will be applied on the back up interface and the remote site should you the public ip of the back up interface as VPN peer.

** As soon as ASA will start getting the reply from the outside interface it will again start pointing the routes towards the MPLS interface.

** I hope this will answer your query.

Ok!

Tks!

But does the VPN works on the same time on two different ISP IPs?
let say, one remote user is connected via ISP01
And another remote user via ISP02?
Regards!
