Problems Remote Access VPN on ASA 5540

I just created a Remote Access VPN, I can connect to the VPN via radius. However, I cannot connect to any of the networks behind the ASA. I have tried to use split-tunneling and without to no avail. I have no problem connecting, its just none of the traffic is being encrypted/sent back to the client.

Here is the config.

access-list INSIDE-TRUSTED_nat0_outbound extended permit ip any

access-list OUTSIDE-UNPROTECTED_cryptomap_dyn_20 extended permit ip any

crypto ipsec transform-set ESP-3DES-SHA esp-3des esp-sha-hmac

crypto dynamic-map OUTSIDE-UNPROTECTED_dyn_map 20 match address OUTSIDE-UNPROTECTED_cryptomap_dyn_20

crypto dynamic-map OUTSIDE-UNPROTECTED_dyn_map 20 set transform-set ESP-3DES-SHA

crypto map OUTSIDE-UNPROTECTED_map 65535 ipsec-isakmp dynamic OUTSIDE-UNPROTECTED_dyn_map


isakmp identity address


isakmp policy 30 authentication pre-share

isakmp policy 30 encryption 3des

isakmp policy 30 hash sha

isakmp policy 30 group 7

isakmp policy 30 lifetime 86400

Re: Problems Remote Access VPN on ASA 5540

A bit hard without seeing your entire config, but make sure you have the following:

nat (inside) 0 access-list INSIDE-TRUSTED_nat0_outbound

Also presumably your IP pool is, so you need to make sure your inside network/hosts have a route that points this network back to the inside interface of the PIX. Also make sure the PIX has a route pointing this network out its outside interface as follows:

I have got it working now, I had some static's pointing to the wrong device. For the Internet, I do not want to use split-tunneling. If I use the route outside interface to the Internet, isn't that saying I am trying to use split-tunneling?


Re: Problems Remote Access VPN on ASA 5540

i guess the command "route OUTSIDE_UNPROTECTED " is only required, if and only if the default gateway of the asa is not set to the outside interface (i.e. the internet router).

further, by applying the route statement as above will not enable split tunneling. in order to configure this feature, an acl needs to be created and applied by using command "split-tunnel".

Exactly, but the point is to have the VPN subnet access the Internet the same as any other subnet, NAT through the ASA's internal interface to the external.
