I posted about an AWS VPN redundant gateway setup to a Cisco ASA a few months back. I worked through the problems and finally had time to document it on my blog, in a fun way. May prove an interesting read to someone.

Dealt with a VPN tunnel establishment between an ASA 5500 series and AWS this week. I was on the ASA side. We were getting crypto map errors relating to quad 0's in the live logging but we'd specified local and remote networks proper on both ends. Google turned up lots of people with the same issue.

Turns out Amazon with their dual HA VPN tunnel config uses IPSec ESP-AES-128 while we had been expecting 256 in our deployment. Having not dealt with AWS and it not being on our end, I was unaware.


TLDR - if you deal with AWS VPN tunnels to ASA by chance, remember P2 AES is 128. It will save you a bit of trouble. Also only use a single entry in the extended permits as Amazon has hard limits.

Racked these 500D's, along with some Cisco port extenders, several Dell r630's, and more to come during a new private cloud build out. I work from home and it's fun to get to work with new hardware in the datacenter every once in a while.

Bad checksum error, Windows 2000 BSOD restaurant in Concord, NC. Their smoked sirloin is simply incredible though, despite their POS system using Win2k :)

An excellent read on the KDE desktop as it transitions to a more modular approach. If you've any interest in Linux desktop, it's worth checking out.
