I have two sites connected via VPN. I restricted it so that only four IP addresses could communicate across the VPN for security purposes. The syntax I know of for the ASA's is below.

object-group network RockIsland-2
 description RockIsland-2 internal IP Range
 network-object host 192.168.6.30
 network-object host 192.168.6.32
 network-object host 192.168.6.33
 network-object host 192.168.6.31

access-list vpn2RI extended permit ip 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 object-group RockIsland-2
access-list nonat extended permit ip 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.6.0 255.255.255.0

I just added a 5th IP address to the network-object command and the new workstation works fine. A couple days later, one of the five workstations does not work. It can't connect across the VPN. I am wondering if there is a configuration change that I need to make that I didn't know about.?

Thanks,

Justin

Turns out you have to add the "network-object host" command to both ASA's that are involved with the VPN connect. I added the fifth device to the remote ASA and then it started working several minutes later.
