PIX to PIX VPN Configuration

Beginner
Beginner

I am running a PIX to PIX IPSEC VPN. I am using two PIX 506s. The VPN configuration indicated below works fine. But I would like to change the IP address in Network B from the network 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 to the new range 10.183.158.0 mask 255.255.255.240

When I change the IP address on the access list on PIX2 the VPN fails to work. The following Access-list works:

Access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

When I change it to this one below the VPN fails to work

Access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 10.183.158.0 255.255.240

What could be the problem?

PIX Version 6.3(3)

access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.

The mask on acl 101 looks truncated on this email. I'll suppose the ACL is

Access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.240

and you want 128 host on net-A to reach 15 hosts on net-B.

(IF I'm wrong do not read the following notes)

Your new ACL-101 is wrong. Both source and desination are in the same network.

You may want to add a new route outside on your pix A.

Ensure the pix B has the reflecting acl 101 you have defined on pix A.

Initiate the following commands to force a reset on the tunnel:

clear isakmp sa

clear ipsec sa

Mike

what would be the correct ACL-101 in this case.

Will it be correct if we used the following ACL:

Access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.168.0 255.255.255.128 10.183.170.0 255.255.255.128

are these two different subnets?

Last ACL is correct. This will encrypt traffic from net-A range 10.183.168.0-127 to net-B 10.183.170.0-127

May I suggest this link referring to subnet calculation:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/IpSubnet/subnets.pl

or the complete tables:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/pix/pix_sw/v_63/config/subnets.htm#wp1003601

just to help my understanding. is this ACL correct?

access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 10.183.158.128 255.255.255.128

ACL is correct.

You will also have add this route to your pix config:

route outside 10.183.158.128 255.255.255.128

otherwise your route inside 10.183.0.0/16 will take precedence.

This will mean having two routes. Is this ok?

1. route outside 0.0.0.0 218.193.34.49 1

2. route outside 10.183.158.128 255.255.255

.128 e1

Secondly, What IP addresses are available in each subnet? and which IP address in each subnet should be allocated to the internal interface of each PIX. Can we use any IP address is the range available?

hi, the problem is that you are tyrin to make vpn work with 2 subnets having the same ip range.... thts all..

to really make a vpn work, you shud have seperate subnets at both end..

hi CJ

I want to use the following subnets:

Subnet A - 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 (IP addresses available 10.183.158.1-127)

Subnet B - 10.183.158.128 255.255.255.128 (IP addresses available 10.183.158.129-254)

Are you saying that If I used these two subnets the VPN wont work? What is your counter proposal?

Hi,

see this :

>>ip address inside 10.183.158.8 255.0.0.0

It says all the 10.X.X.X network is towards ur inside interface.

if that is the only small subnet you are using, give appropriate ip to ur interface like :

ip address inside 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128

if this is the case, You wont be able to make it work with this setup.

Also, if you can make the above change, the ACL needs to be changed from

>>Access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 10.183.158.0 255.255.240

to

access-list 101 permit ip 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128 10.183.158.128 255.255.255.128

Just change the '0' with ip of your choice...

ip address inside 10.183.158.0 255.255.255.128

ok will try these suggestions. I am using CISCO PIX 506 OS 6.3(3). Do all these configurations apply to Operating System 6.3 (3)

Thanks. I implemented the suggestions and the VPN worked fine

Congrats....
