Hello, I'm trying to configure remote access on a Cisco ASA 5505 using the Anyconnect. I've followed the steps exactly from: "http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/data-center/eight-easy-steps-to-cisco-asa-remote-access-setup/" but the difference is, I don't a fqdn that I can point users to. So would I and how do I setup a user to access the vpn using our public IP address? Is this even possible?

Thanks,
Brad

Yes, you can use the IP address. FQDN is only to make it easy for reading. Note: In order for the FQDN to work it will have to be resolved to an IP address via DNS. Use the outside interface's IP address.

Ok, I redid the steps and only used the public IP of the outside interface as the fqdn as well as the domain for the certificate. That seemed to work, however i tried to enter the command "nat (inside) 0 access-list no_nat" and I get the following message (I believe it's because the steps were created on an older version of the IOS and I'm running 9.22):

"ERROR: This syntax of nat command has been deprecated.
Please refer to "help nat" command for more details."

So long story short, I can connect to the VPN, but now I can't ping anything on my 192.168.72.0 network or access any shared drives. The network for the VPN addresses is 192.168.100.0.  Would this have something to do with the above command not working? Thanks!
