Show connected vpn users

Unanswered Question
Jul 18th, 2007

We are running Cisco IOS 12.4T on our routers and our remote users connect from their laptops via IPSec to our routers to access the resources in the internal network. How can I see a list of current connected users? What is the IOS command for it?


I have this problem too.

Try command

show aaa user all

You get output with lot of information

so you can grep only uesr info with command

show aaa user all | i IPSEC-TUNNEL: Username=

Has anyone figured if this is possible to see current users connected? While I'm not typically a fan of web interfaces and prefer CLI, our VPN concentrators have a great web interface that show us the logged in users and what IP they are using. Would be really handy is IOS had this as well.

Thanks dfutros !

with IOS Version 12.4(24)T2, it works perfectly:

FIRCOPAR-RTR-1#show crypto session detail | include Username
Username: minos
Username: virgile
