Cisco ASA VPN Lan2Lan Filtering

I have setup a Lan2Lan VPN between a Cisco ASA 5520 and a Linux Box.
Everything works fine with the default configuration.
I want to filter specific ip's from the Linux lan side accessing specific ip's to the Asa Lan.

I have setup VPN filter's to the ASA and the work fine, BUT i cannot access any pc on the Linux lan side.
Wherever i try to connect to a box that is behind the linux firewall i get this error :

2 Jan 26 2008 17:18:58 106001 Inbound TCP connection denied from to flags SYN on interface internal

Any solutions ?

Do you have PFS disabled on both Interfaces ?

Do you use ASA's, or routers  for L2L VPN ?
hi i use ASA on both, disabled PFS on both, otherwise i could establish a tunnel for a long time.
its totaly strange.

i want to limit incoming traffic from a remote tunnel, i do this via a policy group-mapped to an acl and to a tunnel-group.

For example:

access-list inside permit ip
access-group inside in interface inside

access-list tunnel-data permit tcp eq 80
group-policy tunnelpol att vpn-filter tunnel-data

tunnel-group tunnelgrp gen default-group-policy tunnelpol

sysopt connection permit-vpn

No data Flows, i get the error: Deny inbound tcp 80 src inside to on interface inside

if i add this: access-list tunnel-data permit ip all traffic flows in both directions, but i only want to allow from local to remote ALL and from remote to LOCAL only 80 tcp.

stateful everything should flow (ACKs from Remote), but SYN only from SOURCE.

iam getting crazy....

Don't :P

When you apply a filter rule it works biderectional.

e.g if you apply a filter rule that specifies that remote lan can see a server in your local lan in port 80, then the server that exists in your local lan is able to see the remote lan ONLY in port 80.

So, this rule access-list tunnel-data permit tcp eq 80

tells to asa to permit biderectional traffic only on port 80 from both sides.

If you want to administer the remote lan from your pc or group of pc's from your local lan then you have to create a rule like:

access-list tunnel-data permit tcp eq ip

Make sure that the first network is always the remote net in this case

but i want that my lan can see anything (eq ip) and the remotesite can only !!! answer (ACK), and SYN on PORT 80, like:
