Having issues using a Cisco IPSEC VPN into a VLAN'd VM. To this point I think it is a VMware issue but not completely satisfied with that conclusion. Attached is a ESX network config along with a basic diagram of what I am attempting to accomplish.
Basically I have 1 physical server along with a Cisco PIX on the remote side. This is to connect through a Cisco IPSEC site to site VPN tunnel to a ASA5510 then a Cisco 3750 which has both VLAN's configured on it (VLAN1/VLAN21). Both ESX servers and VC are on VLAN1. The VM is configured on VLAN21 along with another physical server on VLAN21. VLAN's are configured on the 3750.
Issue so far is that I cannot connect to the VM through the VPN tunnel. The VPN tunnel is configured correctly and I am able to ping consistently the VM without any drops. I am not able to connect by any other means to the VM (RDP/FTP/VNC/etc). If I apply a static public IP to the VM in the ASA I am able to RDP/FTP/etc to the VM. So in troubleshooting I configured a physical server on the same VLAN. I am able to access this server through the VPN tunnel and as a static mapped public IP.
So that is my dilemma in what is exactly is the hang up in connecting to the VM through a site to site tunnel yet through normal public means by statically mapping a external IP I am able to access the VM.
If additional configuration/detail is needed I'll be happy to provide that being this is not in a production status yet.
Thanks in advance.
