CIsco ASA 5505 and VPN licenses

Unanswered Question
Jan 30th, 2007


Cisco ASA 5505 comes with 10 VPN licenses in a standard configuration.

How those licenses are counted? Will I need a license per one IPSec SA?

If I have two site connected with LAN-to-LAN VPN with 10 subnets at one site, how many licenses will be taken? 10 - one per IPSec SA or just 1 - one per point-to-point VPN?

Thank you.



I have this problem too.

In an ASA 5505, it should say something like this...when you do sh ver.


VPN Peers : 25


It means that you can have so many peers connecting to the ASA. Its not per IPSec SA.

Its a per tunnel license.

Rate this, if it helps!
