Can't establish RDP connection over IPSec L2L VPN


Got 2 ASA 5505 connected to each other via L2L IPsecVPN. I can RDP a server from my remote location to HQ site but cant RDP from HQ to remote site. VPN is up and running ok. I can ping any server from both sites. I have attached running configs from both ASA5505. Public IP Address and relevant names on the configuration were omitted. Any feedback is highly appreciated.

Re: Can't establish RDP connection over IPSec L2L VPN

windows firewall would have got RDP out of its exeption list. As soon as we checked the box you would be able to connect.

Re: Can't establish RDP connection over IPSec L2L VPN

You shouldn't need to add the explicit line for RDP as it will be covered by the IP line you have:

access-list outside_1_cryptomap_1 extended permit ip inside

Its difficult to read this you have cut the access-group statement from the remote site config.

try adding

access-list inside_access_in extended permit tcp any any eq 3389

to the HQ firewall.

I believe there is a sysopt command that allows you to bypass these lists for site-site vpn but never quite got it to work myself.

Do you get any syslog error messages, these can be helpful.
