I have a Cisco ASA 5505 firewall on which I have setup a remote access VPN.   I would like to be able to access and configure the firewall while conencted over the remote access vpn.   I have set the management interface to inside and I have added the external IP range to the list of allowed IP addresses.

I have two other VPN's setup and I have set them up the same way and I have no problem accessing them over the VPN.  I even tried resetting the firewall to factory defaults and rebuilding with the same results

Have you tried the below.

ciscoasa# config terminal
ciscoasa(config)# management-access inside
ciscoasa(config)# end

If you tried, or still does not work, Please post sanitized config.

Is anything showing in the logs when you try to connect?
And, like Iruiz52 said, could you post a sanitized config?

The issue likely is that the router is preventing the inter/intra interface such that the VPN connected system attempt to access the Asa prevents the access.
same-security-traffic permit inter-interface which should allow VPN connection traffic to then comeback via the inside interface.

Ther are other options to allow remote management.

Below is a sanatized config.  I can connect to the VPN and access computers on the network with no problem.   After I have connected to the VPN I have checked my IP address and it is in the 192.168.2.xxx range.   When I try and use a web browser to access the ASDM i just get a page not found error.  If I conncet to a computer on the network I can then open a web browser and goto the same address with no problem.

Add the same security entry and that should resolve the issue. Traffic coming over a VPN to the inside interface is being denied the return path back into the inside interface and to the ASDM.

I tried adding same-security-traffic permit inter-interface to the config but I still cannot manage the firewall from the remote access VPN.   I have two others configured and neither one permits same security traffic.

Do all use the gateway ip as the management ip or do some have a separate ip as the management ip?

Do the others use certificates for ASDM while this one does not?

All three are setup the same with no certificates.  

I resolved the issue tonight.  The NAT command for the VPN was missing "no-proxy-arp route-lookup"  

All three ASAs are running the same version of the software but even though I reset this one to factory defaults and rebuilt it three times the same way I setup the others it left off the above.

The problem was with the nat command and I found it by comparing a working VPN connection with this one
