Re: How to make Anyconnect VPN client talk to inside network thr

You are missing nat exempt rules , add bellow rules and have the client try  again to  access  inside resources.

access-list nonat extended permit ip
nat (inside) 0 access-list nonat

Re: How to make Anyconnect VPN client talk to inside network thr

Thank you for the reply.

You are right, if I enable nat-control, I need the commands you recommand.

I think my problem is not a problem. The VPN client can ping the host connect to the inside network on ASA, but can not ping the inside network interface on ASA itself and from ASA can not ping VPN client IP. I think this is ASA feature, am I right?


Re: How to make Anyconnect VPN client talk to inside network thr

Did you add the IP address of the client (s) int the icmp command?

ICMP permit x.x.x.x [interface]
