Are the two ends of the tunnel on the same subnet?  That will cause what you see.

What answer do you get when you run PING?

It finally worked. I think the issues seems to be with their subnets. I got it to work thanks!

let me ask you a questions since we're at the topic.

How come when I create a crypto map on the asa 5520 v 8.2  I only get an option to create a dynamic map?

When I do crypto map MAP 50 ipsec-isakmp and hit enter, I get command incomplete, so I hit the ? and I get dynamic. How can I just get ipsec-isa and not dynamic map?

I use Juniper and Cisco RVxx routers so the commands and GUI interfaces are different. The subnet issue affects all VPN setups.

Please look at this Cisco Support Article that says that parameters need to be completed before the command can work.


Look down the page for "WARNING: crypto map entry will be incomplete "

See if this sheds any light.
