Cisco ASA 5505 VPN - How to configure to browse connected network?

Posted on 2008-10-14

Hello. I have a Cisco ASA 5505 device that I recently put into place. I have it up and running and users can get to the Internet just fine. I have recently been asked to try to configure it to allow certain users VPN access from home.

I originally configured the VPN through the wizard and that didn't work, so I found a place online that had some examples and I tried to emulate those. I can successfully connect to the VPN now, but I cannot access any of the resources on the network.

My host network is 192.168.121.x and the VPN network is 192.168.122.x. I would like the .122 network to be able to access resources on the .121 network via VPN.

I have attached a copy of the router's config. Where you see <hidden> I have cleared that info.

If someone could take a quick look and see what I might be missing and let me know, that would be great.
Result of the command: "sh run"

What lines did you add or change from the original configuration of the firewall before vpn connectivity was attempted. Could you highlight or copy and paste to a separate doc?

If you're asking about browsing computers in a Windows network, this simply will not work over VPN.
The protocol used to browse computers is called NetBIOS - NetBIOS is a broadcast protocol and broadcasts do not work over VPN - it is impossible to do.
The alternative is to create a mapped drive using IP addresses or DNS names (this uses a different protocol) - but you won't be able to contact a computer just by typing its name and trying to browse it.
Cheers! Let me know if you have any questions!
