Hello -
So I cannot ping my VPN public IP any longer.  ISP carrier saying the IP is up and all good on their side.  I asked users to look at ASA, it is powered with a link light LET green on ASA and on switch also.  Not sure what happened.  No changes were made.  Looks like I have to go to the location and connect to the device locally.

Is it possibly the ASA just dropped its gateway in configuration?  It was working since March this year.  What else could of happen?

Never mind.  The port was blocked at another location.

I doubt the ASA would magically loose its gateway in the config.  

Some options off the top of my head...

1) reload the ASA.  IF changes were made but not written to memory, the ASA should load the last good code from mem at bootup.
2) Do you have dail-in access to any device behind the ASA like a router or something?   You could telnet into the ASA from inside..
