Network drive connection issues with ASA 5505

Posted on 2013-12-02
Last Modified: 2014-01-22
I have a 5510 at the main site, and a 5505 running 8.2(5) at the remote site. I have an issue where it looses connection to all of the internal servers at the main site, and the only way to get it working again is to do a ipconfig /renew on the machine. It happens to all of the machines on that site, just at random times. There are times where computers boot up and the login script does not run. How do I fix this?

I assume you have a site to Site VPN?

Also Does the rmeote site have an ACL applied to outbound traffic?

post the resules of

show run access-group from the 5505 and the 5510

From 5505:
access-group inside_access_in in interface inside
access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

From 5510:
access-group 100 in interface outside
access-group acl_out in interface inside

If it helps, when trying to VNC into those computers I have to actually ping the machine name before it will connect through VNC; if i dont, it will not connect via VNC. And yes, it is a IPSEC tunnel.

OK SO you are filtering all outbound traffic at both sites

On the 5505 add the following

access-list  inside_access_in line 1 permit ip {network address of the site behind the 5505} {subnet of the network behind the 5505} {network address of the site behind the 5510} {subnet of the network behind the 5510}

On the 5510 add the following

access-list  acl_out line 1 permit ip {network address of the site behind the 5510} {subnet of the network behind the 5510} {network address of the site behind the 5505} {subnet of the network behind the 5505}

Then try again
