Cisco ASA Site-to-Site VPN. Tunnel is MM_Active, but no traffic passes

Hello,

So basically I'm trying to set up a site to site VPN from Aberdeen to Houston with a Cisco ASA 5505 at each end. I have the tunnel active, but I am unable to ping the remote WAN/LAN addresses from each side of the tunnel.

From the ASA's I am able to ping the outside interface of each end of the tunnel, but not the inside interface or remote LAN addresses.

I'm somewhat new to Cisco VPNs and kind of stumped as to what my next steps should be.

Attached is the config for both ends.

*edit* Just for clarification on the HoustonAsa config - the tunnel-group that I'm having problems with is x.x.x.235.

If you're reaching MM_ACTIVE, this says that the VPN isn't completing its negotiation. The ISAKMP state will go to IDLE once this has happened. As a start, I would permit 500/udp and esp in your outside_access_in ACLs and see if this gets you any further.

I have permitted UDP and ESP on the outside_access_in and still have not been able to get beyond MM_ACTIVE

I think it's time to turn on some ISAKMP debugging to see what's happening with the negotiation.  Can you turn on "debug crypto isakmp" and post a sample of what's showing up in the log?

ISAKMP showed me it was not getting to phase 2. Corrected encryption settings on both sides and it was fine.
