Question

Can I use floating IP to connect Cisco ASA 5545 VPN server ?

I need to connect the VPN server with the STRONGSWAN client. I have created an Ubuntu droplet and assign floating IP to it and install strongswan.Then I have given my floating IP, private IP with IPsec PSK to the VPN server-side(Cisco ASA 5545 VPN server.) to allow access through VPN.

This is for send SMPP trafic.

But I can’t access their servers through a VPN.

Can I send outbound traffic with floating IP?

Hi @cgweeratunga,

You should be able to. Having said that, I’m not sure I understand the setup entirely.

If I got it correctly, you have a droplet with DigitalOcean which has a floating IP address which you are trying to connect to, correct? From that Droplet you wish to connect to another VPN or I’m understanding something wrong? Please let me know so that I can try and give some suggestions.
