Peer Address Changed

All,

I am currently having some problems on our 5520 ASAs. The problem is the IPSec VPN clients not being able to connect. We have had an issue twice this week where this happened. Earlier in the week we had folks not able to sign in, but some folks who were connected already stayed connected. The ASAs had been up for 200+ days and no changes have been made to it recently. At that point I had to reload the ASAs so users could start signing back in to it. Today we had a similar issue, but I didn’t have to reload the ASAs. The issue‘resolved’ itself. The VPN clients are getting Error code: 433 and the ASAs are getting Reason: Peer Address Changed when this occurs.

ASA5520, 2048 MB RAM, CPU Pentium 4 Celeron 2000 MHz

version 8.3.2

I'm worried that it could strike again.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Bill

Do you have any of the parameters set (in red)?

Re: Peer Address Changed

VPN Client Drops Connection  Frequently on First Attempt or "Security VPN Connection terminated by  tier. Reason 433." or "Secure VPN Connection terminated by Peer Reason  433:(Reason Not Specified by Peer)"

Problem

Cisco VPN client users might receive this error when they attempt the connection with the head end VPN device.

"VPN client drops connection frequently on first attempt" or "Security VPN Connection terminated by tier. Reason 433." or "Secure VPN Connection terminated by Peer Reason 433:(Reason Not Specified by Peer)" or "Attempted to assign network or broadcast IP address, removing (x.x.x.x) from pool"

Solution 1

The problem might be with the IP pool assignment either through  ASA/PIX, Radius server, DHCP server or through Radius server acting as  DHCP server. Use the debug crypto command in order to verify that  the netmask and IP addresses are correct. Also, verify that the pool  does not include the network address and the broadcast address. Radius  servers must be able to assign the proper IP addresses to the clients.

Solution 2

This issues also occurs due to the failure of extended  authentication. You must check the AAA server to troubleshoot this  error. Checking the server authentication password on Server and client  and reloading the AAA server might resolve this issue.

Re: Peer Address Changed

Thanks for the responses.  I typed in 'debug crypto ipsec' and got no results.  Did I use the command properly?

Peer Address Changed

Are you authenticating against a AAA server? I wonder if the problem is not really with the ASA itself, but issues connecting to your AAA server itself. Do you have more than one AAA server specified? If so, are they still valid?
