IPSEC question (making us the initiator, not responder)

We have an issue with one of our IPSEC sites.  If I want a tunnel up, I cannot get it up from the IPSEC site. It has to be intiaited from the head end. Is there anyway to configure the VPN so that either side can bring up the tunnel? This is a Cisco IPSEC tunnel between two ASAs


crypto map mymap 37 match address ipsec
crypto map mymap 37 set peer <ip hidden>
crypto map mymap 37 set transform-set aes128
crypto map mymap interface outside

crypto isakmp enable outside
crypto isakmp policy 50
 authentication pre-share
 encryption aes-256
 hash sha
 group 2
 lifetime 86400

If everything is setup correctly between two ASA's then either party should be able to initiate the tunnel.

Can you post the access-list 'ipsec'?  What about the access-list that's used on the other end?  In the past I've seen this happen sometimes when the subnets and subnet masks are not exactly the same on both ends.

the masks are definitely the same. I would get a QM FSM error if they were not. Maybe a bug? One side is a 515e, the other ASA5505. I opened a tac case
