Second Network on VPN Split Tunnel


Trying to solve a network requirement that involves two VPN's

Current Setup

Local Site:

ASA 5010 installed

Client to Gateway VPN allowing remote clients to access their network, here [Local Site], using Cisco VPN Client Software

Also second VPN connecting the same local network, with a Remote Site using Cisco Site to Site VPN connecting two the networks together.

Split Tunneling has been configured to allow local lan access to remote VPN Cisco VPN Clients when connected.

What I would like to acheive is the ability to allow Cisco VPN clients who have successfully connected to the Local Site, here, also be able to access  the Remote Site that is also connected here, using the Site to Site VPN connection.


Let say, our Local Site is and Cisco VPN clients can connect to this network using Cisco VPN client and have Split Tunnelling to allow local Lan Access.

Lets say, a remote network, using a Cisco Site to Site VPN can also connect to our Local Site

I want to allow Cisco VPN clients that successfully connect via Cisco VPN client to to be also able to access

I was thinking of adding to the Split Tunnel Access List,  will this work or is there a better way to achieve this?

Thank You

Re: Second Network on VPN Split Tunnel

Hello Paul,

Probably both your site to site and remote vpns are terminated on the same interface. By default ASA don’t allow packet to leave the same interface on which it was originally received. To allow same interface routing you need to enable  it. ( Sometimes called IPSec Hairpinning.)

same-security-traffic permit intra-interface

Also you should add remote network to split tunnel  list, and check existing nat rules, so traffic can properly pass between client and remote network.

Re: Second Network on VPN Split Tunnel

Hi Paul,

In order to allow the remote clients to access the L2L tunnel, you must first accomplish the following:

1. Add the client´s network to the L2L tunnel´s encryption domain.

2. Add the remote L2L´s network to the split ACL of the VPN clients (in case splitting is configured).

3. Enable same-security-traffic permit intra-interface

4. If you do not have any NAT rule translating / affecting the traffic on the Outside interface then any NAT rules are required since this traffic is not accesing a higher security level.

5. On the remote side make sure you have a NAT rule allowing traffic from the local network to the VPN pool and the update the encryption domain, it should be the same as the one on the remote location.

That should work for you, let us know how it goes.
