Since you do not have any deny statements in the acl, you can remove it from the Main branch:
  no access-group 101 in interface inside

on Remote, add:
  crypto isakmp identity address

what do you get with "show crypto is sa" ? Issue the command several times until you get something..

Do you have traffic from these two networks? Setup a continuous ping from a host on one side to a host on the other side.
Then post result of "show crypto ip sa"

Hi Sir!

It could be anything.

Please we can start testing with:
Add "sysopt connection permit-ipsec" int the PIX and in the ASA is "sysopt connection permit-vpn"
And delete "crypto map VPNmap 10 set pfs" in ASA.

Just to double check the sub-net behind the PIX is 172.21.173.0/24
And the subnet behind the ASA is: 172.21.174.0/24
Right?


So I recommend you to update this case with a capture of the debug and the show, in console mode:
Please type show crypto isakmp sa to see if the issue is related to phase 1.
And type show crypto ipsec sa if is something with phase 2.
And
"debug crypto isakmp 128"
or "debug crypto isakmp 254"
Copy an paste the debug.
Then "un all" --> refers to undebug all.

Also if would be a great idea if check this link too!

Maybe I going to recreate this in my lab.
Bye!

Agree that you need the syspot commands on both sides.
Also agree that you need to remove the PFS on the ASA

On the PIX, this line:
 >isakmp key ******** address 24.x.x.x netmask 255.255.255.255

Should have added tags:
isakmp key ******** address 24.x.x.x netmask 255.255.255.255 no-xauth no-config-mode

Yes, the PIX subnet is 172.21.173.0/24 and the ASA is 172.21.174.0/24. I have added and removed the required lines but the tunnel is still not coming up. No output from the debug crypto isakmp 150 command either.

What about:
debug crypto isakmp 254

&

debug crypto ipsec 254

Please attach the debugs.
