Connect Then Disconnects PfSense to Cisco ASA



  • I have an Cisco ASA 5510 firewall terminating out VPN tunnels at least 100 tunnels have been configured and working. I have one in particular that causing me major grief; I reboot my device the tunnel comes call phases pass but then a minute later I get the below message:

    I cannot determine if this is the Firewall denying connection or the PFSense dropping the connect after they have established the connection.

    Any assistance if greatly appreciated.

    thx,
