Trouble setting up a VPN connection. Cisco ASA.

June 25, 2012 at 01:50:53
Specs: Windows Vista
Hello there,

If possible i'd like some help with establishing a VPN connection, which I have been attempting, however my efforts have proved unsuccessful. I am also a newbie to Cisco ASDM, having only started it last thursday at work. We have a Cisco ASA 5500 series.

To cut a long story short, i need assistance in setting up a VPN, using the following information, between myself an an external entity. Real IP addresses will not be provided for obvious reasons in this example.

My firewall: 90.xxx.xxx.x
My end client: 192.xxx.xx.2

External firewall: 80.x.xx.xx
External end client: 10.xx.x.123

I also understand that a Nat exempt rule needs to be implemented. I apologise for this initial message being so vague. More information can be provided upon request.

Thank you for your time

Sorry, I have no experience with those particular devices and therefore cannot help you with your setup. Hopefully someone else who helps out here and has experience with those particular Cisco devices will.

What type of internet connection is it on both ends? Are they both business class?

Thaks for your reply. We have a 100mb ethernet connection and I believe the customer at the other end of the VPN has the same. A minor update, i've had a few friends which i've contacted look at it and they seem to have been stumped as well.

heres a screenshot of the packet tracer tool and the results, trying to troubleshoot it.

You might have better luck on the Cisco forum. I found this post where someone got the same error, but I'm not familiar enough with Cisco to help you remotely.

Just to add to what hollowman512 said, when I'm stuck working with Cisco products, I do a lot of googling and hit their website and Cisco related forums for help since they charge an arm and a leg for direct support. You should be able to find what you need if you look hard enough. Chances are you'll have to join a Cisco forum.
