I have in the past worked with Cisco PIXes and know that so called "hairpin routing", i.e. sending traffic back out over the same interface as it came in, is a big no no. However I thought I remembered reading that the situation wasn't so cut and dried with the ASA. Hence my question: is it possible, to have traffic come in from dynamic VPN A over the outside interface, and route to another static VPN "B" also on the outside interface? If the answer is "no!" then is there any other way I can achieve this?

Might be worth mentioning that the endpoint of VPN "B" is an IOS router with Adv IP Services if that makes any difference to the solution.
