unable to ping anyconnect Client IP from ASA

Hi everyone,

I can connect to cisco anyconenct fine no issues.

When connected i can ping the ASA inside interface and other subnets which are behind the ASAs inside interface  from the the PC connected via VPN.

My only issue is that from ASA  i can not ping IP 10.0.0.5.

ASA1#  sh vpn-sessiondb anyconnect

Session Type: AnyConnect

Hello Mahesh,

Hello Mahesh,

Have you tried to ping from the inside network? Or source the packet from the inside interface of the ASA? Remember, that you should have some nat exemption rules for the packets going through the VPN connection. That's how we specify what networks are allowed to reach the VPN clients. If you ping without specifying any interface the packet will be sourced from the outside interface and probably that interface/subnet is not allowed through the VPN connection. Are you using split-tunnel or tunnelall?

You could try to enable management-access on the inside interface and the ping sourced from the inside. These packets should hit the nat exemption rule and will be sent through the tunnel instead of the Internet.

This are the commands needed:

To specify an interface as a management-only interface, enter the following command:

hostname(config)# management access inside

Then you could do a ping inside 10.0.0.5 in order to ping the AnyConnect client from the ASA.

Notes about management access command:

If your VPN tunnel terminates on one interface, but you want to manage the ASA by accessing a different interface, you can identify that interface as a management-access interface. For example, if you enter the ASA from the outside interface, this feature lets you connect to the inside interface using ASDM, SSH, Telnet, or SNMP; or you can ping the inside interface when entering from the outside interface. Management access is available via the following VPN tunnel types: IPsec clients, IPsec LAN-to-LAN, and the AnyConnect SSL VPN client.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Luis

Hello Mahesh,Great to hear

Hello Mahesh,

Great to hear that everything is working fine! 

Basically, when you tried to ping the VPN client subnet (10.0.0.0/24) the packet was being sourced from the Outside interface of the ASA, however, this ip/subnet was not allowed to go through the VPN connection because it was not included on the split tunnel ACL. Remember that the split tunnel ACL is used to specify the networks reachable through the VPN tunnel. If the network or ip address is not included the packets will be sent through the Internet instead of the VPN. You could find the networks reachable through the VPN connection on the VPN client once you are connected. You can go to VPN clients statistics=> route details => Secure routes.

At this point packets from ASA towards to the client and viceversa should be going through the VPN connection. 

 

Hope this clear your doubts,

Luis.

  Hi Luis,Yes i am able to

 

 

Hi Luis,

Yes i am able to ping from inside network fine.Also when i ping with inside interface it works fine.

I was using spilt tunnel policy.

management access inside is already configured on the ASA.

 

Also now i added the outside interface subnet under the split tunnel and now i am able to ping the IP 10.0.0.5 from ASA without using the

inside.

So does it mean that earlier ping was failing because subnet 10.0.0.0/24  traffic was going via the tunnel and it was using outside interface IP

as source and traffci flow was from the source as internet (outside interface IP of ASA) and destination was user PC IP (inside the tunnel?

So seems when we do ping from VPN client PC  to inside interface of ASA that packet goes via

tunnel right?

 

OR when i ping from ASA with inside IP 10.0.0.5 that packet also goes via tunnel right?

 

Regards

Hello Mahesh,

 

Adding to the great answer that Luis just provided you it's important to check the basics as well.

 

Make sure the Windows Firewall is disabled on that PC and that you are not running any powerful Anti-Virus system that could be blocking this traffic.

 

If that does not help then follow Luis instructions as those are the next steps.
