Dear Experts,

Scenario:

well first thing you need to do is fix the IP address I presume.

site to site vpn will work without a static IP (but only on one side), but it forces the dynamic IP side to "dial in" to the other one so it has to initiate the tunnel.

for some reason I'm thinking if you have to re-type the commands again you didn't save the commands.  after you type them all in did you run one of hte following

copy run start
or
wr mem

if you're not saving the running config to the startup config, any changes since last start config save will be lost and you'll have to re-put them back in

edit:  actually you most likely can have both sides be dynamic but it requires the use of DNS and DynDNS auto-registrations then.  I'm not 100% on that though as I've never tried that.

I have site to site tunnels to clients in my home office using a Cisco RV042G router. The clients have static external IP addresses. My IP is dynamic.

There are two ways to do this (excluding upgrading to a static IP).

1. Go with an Internet Supplier that offers stable IP addressing. My IP changes about once every 2 years and I can manage it.

2. Get DynDNS (dyndns.org) for the dynamic location. This presents a static IP to the outside world and allows the site IP to change dynamically. This works as well.

You need to have the username and password configured. Can you post a scrubbed copy of the configs?

You should have something like:

crypto ipsec client ezvpn "some_name"
connect auto
group "your_group_name" key mykey
mode client
peer "peer address"
username "name" password "password"
xauth userid mode local

These should be the steps, if you don't have them:

1. You need to define the username and password on the ASA.

2. On the 2601 use the name and password in 1 under the crypto configs

crypto ipsec client ezvpn ezvpnvillage
 connect auto
 group DefaultRAGroup key village
 mode network-extension
 peer "my public ip"
  name "use username defined on the server" password "use password on defined on the server"
