Cisco ASA allowing management-access from VPN


The inside interface of the PIX (also applies to ASA) cannot be accessed from the outside or from the other side of the VPN tunnel unless the management-access is configured. Once management-access is enabled, Telnet, SSH, or HTTP access must still be configured for the desired hosts.

The following allows management access to the inside interface in global configuration mode:

ASA(config)# management-access inside

#update – This command also enables ping access to the INSIDE interface of the VPN. As with SSH/HTTP you must also permit ICMP to the interface before you can get a response
