Meraki To Cisco ASA 5500 Site to Site VPN

Dear Experts,

 We are setting up a Site2Site VPN between Meraki Firewall MX64W and an ASA 5510 firewall.

First time I do this.

I am not sure how to add the Meraki network peer address in the ASA firewall. All the VPNs I have here are pointing to public static IP addresses. The Meraki is DHCP. I only see that dashboard address that I wonder if I could use.

Any useful documents you know of for this task?

Thank you

As @Iruiz52 Points out on the link, assuming you know VPN concept and whatnot you need to remember VPN structure and configuration will remain the same in any device as long you use the proper configuration in both ends.

Permit traffic from A to B
Deny nat from A to B

Phase 1 configuration Policy
Phase 2 Encryption Policy

Meraky configuration is really straightforward

I open up a case with the asking where to point from the ASA side of things:


Thank you for contacting Cisco Meraki Technical Support.
You will use as Meraki's Public IP on the ASA.

I've included some documentation that may be of use to you below:
