IPSec tunnel not permitting SSH traffic

We have an IP sec tunnel setup between two locations, Once side is Cisco and the other a Fortigate. The ACL is setup to allow all traffic between the two locations. Most traffic does work but we found we are unable to pass SSH traffic through. We can see the SSH traffic leaving the Fortigate.  We have no problem connecting with SSH through the NAT statements on teh Cisco, so we know its the tunnel that is causing this. What am I missing?

You know so much more than I about this.  I can mostly read about it and search to maybe save some time for you, if I get lucky.

One place I finally found explained the same problem getting SSH to work over tunnel between two different Cisco units.  To paraphrase, the default setting is that you cannot manage ASA2 on an interface that is different than the one to which ASA1 is connected.  So traffic from ASA2 goes through tunnel and ends up at ASA1 on the outside interface.  At the same time, ASA1 is trying to manage ASA2 on the inside interface.

If I understand it correctly, to allow SSH on the inside interface, the fix is using the command:


the way Cisco puts it is here below.
NAT and VPN Management Access

When using VPN, you can allow management access to an interface other than the one from which you entered the ASA (see the management-access command). For example, if you enter the ASA from the outside interface, the management-access feature lets you connect to the inside interface using ASDM, SSH, Telnet, or SNMP; or you can ping the inside interface.

from here.

Did I get lucky?

Neither device is an ASA.

If I read correctly you are trying to connect from behind the fortigate VPN box to a network behind a Cisco router running IPSec (with a crypto map and a simple match 100).

Or are you trying to SSH to the Cisco IPSec router from behind the fortigate ?

And also I do not see any NAT config. Is that a workaround?

I'm trying to SSH to a switch behind the Cisco router over teh IPSec tunnel.
