S2S vpn between cisco ASAs static to dynamic

I am trying to  establish a s2s vpn between two sites. one site has a staic public ip and the other has static privae ip with a a router in the middle doing natting (i have no control over that router that s placed  after the  asa at the remote site).

I had  this working before in a test lab,  but now I am having issues  getting it tow work in a liveenvironement. I have verified that the passphrase is the same and policies  do match. when i  do show isakmp sa on remote I get (state Am_wait_MSG2)  and on the main site it says no there are no isakmp sas). I  can  see traffic hitting outside port of the firewall coming from the public ip of the gateway. I evn allowed udp 500  on the outside interface , but still having issues.

Just to add that there is a router gateway somewhere on  the way to the mainsite doing natting.

Can someone please assist with this  issue.

Thanks

below are the configs (public IPs have  been edited)

If you are seeing Am_wait_MSG2 on the VPN initiating end, and nothing on the other VPN peer end, that means the traffic is most probably being dropped on its way to the other end. That is why it's not working.

So the initiating end has send out MSG1, and is waiting for MSG2 from the VPN peer, hence the status of Am_wait_MSG2. And as you said, you see nothing on the remote VPN peer end, that means MSG1 that is being sent out by the initiating end does not reach the remote VPN end.

I would check the router, or get in touch with someone who manages the router to see if UDP/500, and UDP/4500 is being blocked.

Jennifer, thanks for your response.

I do see traffic with the public IP address of the gateway reaching the outsude interface  of the remoe site. However, I dont see any response to those requests. Below are the two log messages i get on the ASA at the main site

713903  Group = DefaultRAGroup, IP = 2.2.2.2, Error: Unable to remove PeerTblEntry

713902 Group = DefaultRAGroup, IP = 2.2.2.2, Removing peer from peer table failed, no match!

Do you have preshared key configured on the main site? I don't see that on your posted config.

Can you pls run the following debugs:

debug cry isa

debug cry ipsec

Jennifer,

When running the two debug commands on the Mainsite ASA, I get the same syslog messages as above (713903 and 713902)

Thanks

Can you pls remove the following line:

crypto map satellite_map 1 set phase1-mode aggressive

Jennifer,

I have removed that statment and changed it to main mode and still have same issue. I believe the ISP is doing two nats on the way. How does the double natting affect the S2S vpn?

Double NATing is OK as long as they are allowing UDP/500 and ESP traffic through. Are they doing NAT or PAT?

Yes. They are using PAT.

In that case, you would need to enable NAT-T on the ASA: crypto isakmp nat-traversal 31

Also, make sure that the ISP opens UDP/500 and UDP/4500.
