Okay, this is the first time setting up a cisco device so I am very novice at it. First some history.
They had a linksys router using the vpn client. When setting up the linksys you have to configure the device to use a random ip address range. It has been set to:
This has been working for years and there are printers/workstaions/server static in this range.
The Linkys VPN client really annoys me and have heard great things about the asa 5500 series. So, I am giving this a try.
However, I can not get the ASA to accept the different IP address. I have tried many things through the GUI and through hyper terminal. If I make a change I will no longer get a dhcp address or can no longer use the GUI to set one back up.
I was successful in getting the address changed once and set a static IP on the PC and could ping the ASA. But that was it - no GUI to configure the ISP or VPN clients.
So, is the above IP address so strange that it just won't work?
Would it be possible to use this range so I don't have to change the entire network?
Also, Linksys had you change to the different address to make it more likely that you would be in a different subnet than the host network. If the remote network matched the Linksys VPN client would fail. Is this a concern with the ASA?
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated
