Unable to ping outside interfaces (from outside)

I'm in the process of setting up AnyConnect VPN to our ASA (5525) and in the process have realized that I'm unable to ping either of my outside interfaces from the internet.  A basic rundown of my setup:

 

Two outside interfaces - outside and outside_centurylink (each routes to a separate internet circuit).  I'm using policy based routing to utilize both internet circuits simultaneously.  This works without any issues.

 

I have the following icmp settings configured:

 

icmp permit any outside
icmp permit any unreachable outside
icmp permit any time-exceeded outside
icmp permit any echo-reply outside
icmp permit any outside_centurylink
icmp permit any unreachable outside_centurylink
icmp permit any time-exceeded outside_centurylink
icmp permit any echo-reply outside_centurylink

 

Packet-tracer indicates that the icmp traffic should be allowed:

The only odd thing I can spot is from ASDM's packet tracer:

Anyone have any thoughts on this?  I'm pulling my hair out here and feel like there's got to be something obvious that I'm just overlooking.

Re: Unable to ping outside interfaces (from outside)

For AnyConnect session are you using outside interface or outside_centurylink interface?

Did you try to open a session on port 443 on both interface from internet?

 

Could you post your config about AnyConnect?

Re: Unable to ping outside interfaces (from outside)

My AnyConnect config is not yet completed - once I realized the interfaces were unreachable from outside I stopped to tackle that.

 

outside_centurylink is where AnyConnect will be enabled initially, which is why I was running the packet trace on that specific interface.

Re: Unable to ping outside interfaces (from outside)

So both interfaces are unreachable by ping from outside.

Do you have configured a default route on outside interface?

Re: Unable to ping outside interfaces (from outside)

This prompted to go back and recheck the routing and I've learned a couple of things:

 

1. Ping to the outside interface is working.  It's only outside_centurylink that's not.

2. The route that I set up for outside_centurylink is not in the routing table.

 

The gateway of last resort is the gateway for the outside interface - I'm guessing that traffic coming in from outside_centurylink is falling back to the gateway of last resort when trying to respond and failing since it's in a different subnet.  A cursory google search is pointing me to ECMP as a possible solution, so I may need to dig deeper there.

Re: Unable to ping outside interfaces (from outside)

Ping is failing because ASA is answering with the wrong interface.

You should track default route on outside and use the second outside interface as backup.
