Answered Question
Jul 11th, 2007

A K8 was ordered by mistake, what does it take to make it a K9? I would prefer AES over DES for the VPN.

I have this problem too.

Hi ,

It seems that you are referring to K8 at the the end, you dont need to worry about this. ASA5520-K8 is only Based product ID and has nothing to do with license/image on the device.

If you need to use AES license for your VPN, you can obtain it for free from following link-

https://tools.cisco.com/SWIFT/Licensing/PrivateRegistrationServlet

Once you get the activation-key for AES/3DES license, you can install it on your ASA using "activation-key " command in config mode. A reload is required.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Vibhor.

Excellent, I had a feeling I could do this, but wasn't sure. I have to get on the sales guys so they order the correct part number to make my job easier. It's hard enough trying to configure these when the customer doesn't know what they want them to do.
