Allowing management access to an ASA across a site to site VPN tunnel

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

Ok, so you want to manage your ASA from a network connected via site to site VPN tunnel. No prob. Two easy steps makes this happens.

First you have to add the network as an allowed access via the inside network. (I will use the network in my example)

From CLI it’s:
http inside

If this was a directly connected network then that is all you would have to do, however since it is connected from VPN you also need to specify the inside interface as a management interface with this command.

management-access inside

You can do all this from the ASDM as well:

Under Configuration, Device Management, Management Access:

Add the network on the inside interface  in the ASDM/HTTPS/Telnet/SSH section

Then enable management access on the inside network under the  Management Interface section
