ASA Site To Site VPN Issue

Hello All,

So I have a site to site vpn going between an ASA and an 800 series router. After the a connection is made and I try to ping/browse something from a workstation behind the 800 to a server behind the ASA and I get the following on the ASA logs&

Deny inbound icmp src inside: dst inside: (type 0, code 0)

I get this for just not icmp&.so in looking at the config I am not sure what I have overlooked.

Traffic from the 800 is

Thanks All!

I think you may have a problem with the below although logically it still works and in the NAT exempt statement I have seen it work just fine but not sure if that translates to it working in the crypto map

object-group network Inside_Networks

access-list outside_cryptomap extended permit object-group DM_INLINE_PROTOCOL_1 object-group Inside_Networks

As the Inside_Networks address actually overlaps the destination address of

Also this route actually changes the direction of all internal network traffic including what may need to go over the VPN? Is this intended?

route inside x.x.x.254 1

we have taken the and sliced the 10.10.220.x/ so we can setup several of these routers at homes, etc...

so we have several internal nets that follow the pattern of 10.10.x.0/ this is why i have the route inside x.x.x.254 1 - i could break this down to the diffrent networks...

I will give this a quick change and see...

I think route inside x.x.x.254 1 was the issue -- I just changed the route on the ASA side to a single /24 network to do a test and bam it worked!
