Cisco ASA 5505 L2TP troubles

I have been trying to setup a L2TP VPN between my computer at home and my Cisco ASA 5505 (Version 8.3(2)) at work. I followed the setup wizard as I did with the Cisco VPN client setup, but I can not get my L2TP connection to work. The Cisco VPN client works fine, but I don't want to install the client on every PC I use to connect to the office.

When I look at the logging I see the following error, which would indicate a problem with the crypto maps, but I have no idea what.

Group = DefaultRAGroup, IP =, QM FSM error (P2 struct &0xd52ac5b8, mess id 0x1)!

Any help anybody could give me would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Cisco ASA 5505 L2TP troubles

Do this and check L2TP:

no crypto dynamic-map outside_dyn_map 20 set pfs group1

no crypto dynamic-map outside_dyn_map 20 set transform-set ESP-3DES-SHA

crypto dynamic-map outside_dyn_map 20 set transform-set TRANS_ESP_3DES_SHA ESP-3DES-SHA

Re: Cisco ASA 5505 L2TP troubles

Hello Pradhuman,

Thanks for the quick reply. I removed the old mapping and added the one you recommended, unfortunately when I tried to connect I received the same error message.

Re: Cisco ASA 5505 L2TP troubles

Think I found the solution, apparently crypto isakmp nat-traversal was disabled. I enabled it and the connection was established!
