HTTP and SMB over Cisco LAN-to-LAN IPSec-VPN

we are connecting Cisco 887VA router with various other Non-Cisco routers.

VPN tunnels are up and we can ping devices on the remote network through the VPN.

However, we have a few devices (on the Cisco lan) that provide a web interface (NAS etc) and these are not accessible over the VPN, the connection seems to just hang like its waiting for a response but it never gets one and eventually the browser times out.

Strangely, if I request a page that does not exist from the NAS (eg. http://192.168.3.x/test) I will receive a 404 error so it is kind of working.

Similar problems with SMB, if I access \\192.168.3.x I can list the content (4 items) but if I go into one of those folders (containing 10+ items) it hangs and eventually gives up.

I have tried adjusting MTU and MSS with no change.

Any ideas cause I'm running out of hair

My config is attached, it is most likely a mess as this is my first Cisco device so please go easy

Re: HTTP and SMB over Cisco LAN-to-LAN IPSec-VPN


If I understand correctly, the problem is related to services that are also available on the public network via static translation?

1. I checked your configuration and it isn't clear to me.

For example:

ip nat pool windisplay0 netmask type rotary



ip nat inside destination list windisplay0 pool windisplay0

The syntax is:

ip nat inside destination { list  pool  | static   }

Where is the ACL "windisplay0" ?

2. I suggest read this document: Configuring a Router IPsec Tunnel Private-to-Private Network with NAT and a Static


Best regards,

Sorry about the confusion factor, it seems I inadvertantly snipped some of the config.

I have attached new config.

Thank you!
