Basic ASA IPsec VPN Configuration Examples

For the purposes of this article, the examples will follow the topology shown in Figure 1. Because this article is not about ASA ACLs, it is assumed that ACLs will have existed to allow communications between PC1's network and PC2's network.

Figure 1 Example topology

Table 1 shows the commands that would be used to set up the common configuration elements regardless of whether using IKEv1 or IKEv2.
