ASA5505 direct tunnel to tunnelbroker

I think this would be much easier and straight-forward if I introduced a router into the equation, but I might need some help with this on my ASA5505 connected directly to a cable modem (and performing basic gateway/NAT functions at home). Does anyone have any information on how to configure this directly on the ASA5505?

Sorry if this was already covered elsewhere -- I've searched around these forums and the internet for some ASA specific information, but everyone else seems to have the ASA behind a router.

This is my ASA sho ver output (in case this just isn't possible for me):

The ASAs don't support basic tunnels, they only support IPSec tunnels (The ASA doesn't run IOS). It would be neat if he.net supported IPSec tunnels and then I'd try out my 5505 (If someone at he.net wants to try this I'm game to beta it). In the mean time I'm IPv4 only at home.


Wow no way to do a tunnel from 5505 ? This is not good news :(

I wonder whats the best to do this ?


I'm running mine through a BSD-based router and using my 5520 for access control.
