I'm configuring a Cisco ASA 5505. I try to configure a AnyConnect VPN. It works for the outside GAN. I have access to that, I can ping it also, but I cannot ping/access anything that is in my LAN. Can someone help me?

Here is my configuration

Be indulgent with me, I'm a dev.


@hertitu worked. Now I can ping inside. But another problem appear. I cannot ping outside anymore.

  • what do you mean with "It works for the outside GAN. I have access to that, I can ping it" ? – hertitu Oct 7 '16 at 7:18
  • I have Internet access and I can ping. – Alec von Barnekow Oct 7 '16 at 7:19
  • you have a VPN username and password in the configuration pasted on the Internet, please change this password immediately on your system. – JFL Oct 7 '16 at 7:31
  • It's already done – Alec von Barnekow Oct 7 '16 at 7:32

You currently have this NAT configuration:

nat (any,outside) source dynamic any interface

which matches the traffic between the Anyconnect client (which is on the outside!) and the inside. Therefor you need NAT Exemption, i.e. a NAT rule saying that al traffic from inside to the VPN should not be translated, like this:

nat (inside,outside) 1 source static any any destination static NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24 NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24
nat (users,outside) 1 source static any any destination static NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24 NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24

Note that the "1" will cause this rule to be matched before all other NAT.

Edit: as discussed in comments/chat, for the Internet access to also work, you need to modify the above 2 rules and replace "any" with "global-inside-network" :

nat (inside,outside) 1 source static global-inside-network global-inside-network destination static NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24 NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24
nat (users,outside) 1 source static global-inside-network global-inside-network destination static NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24 NETWORK_OBJ_172.16.200.0_24
  • Now I can ping in my LAN, but my I cannot ping outside of my LAN. :( – Alec von Barnekow Oct 7 '16 at 8:00
  • Can you please clarify for both the working and failing ping: where are you pinging from, and which address are you pinging? – hertitu Oct 7 '16 at 8:04
  • Inside my LAN I can access/ping everything. But outside I can access/ping nothing. I tested with the Google public DNS. – Alec von Barnekow Oct 7 '16 at 8:06
  • Sorry but that is still ambiguous. Do you mean that from the client you can ping everything on the inside, but from the client you cannot ping ? – hertitu Oct 7 '16 at 8:13
  • And did you add those 2 nat rules like I wrote them, or did you add a single one with nat (any,outside) ? That is not the same because it also matches (outside,outside). – hertitu Oct 7 '16 at 8:14
