Cisco ASA 5508 VPN problem with anyconnect


We are currently using a Cisco ASA 5508, we have a Site to Site VPN connected to one of the vlan. If colleagues want to log in from home they have to use a cisco anyconnect client, but there are only 4 of them at the moment. I tried using a plain built-in windows client but never managed to get the connection to work properly with the vlaned S2S vpn. This is where I would like your help.

 - I wouldn't go for S2S vpn for individual clients, the purpose of S2S vpn is to connect (company) hubs. Note that you can download Anyconnect for free , an example setup tutorial on ASA is :

@asa-nub you mean you can connnect with anyconnect, but are unable to access resources over S2S VPN that is terminated on the 5508?

If so you'd need to configure the ASA to hairpin traffic - same-security-traffic permit intra-interface
You would also need a NAT exemption rule to ensure traffic between the AnyConnect IP pool and the S2S networks are not unintentially translated.

If you still have a problem provide your configuration and some more clarity on the issue.


thanks for the replies, I'll clarify a bit:
we have another company connected to S2S VPN so we can work on their systems, but we have people who only work from home, they need anyconnect VPN. If anyconnect VPN is connected then all resources are accessible on the other side, but if when use the built-in windows client then have no internet and can't access resources with the same settings as with anyconnect. Tunnel All Network is configured on S2S VPN.


interesting issue, do you solve it ?


hello, unfortunately we have not yet found a solution, although it is becoming more and more urgent. Maybe I asked the question in the wrong place, it should have been in another topic.
