We need to add to our VPN abilities - Currently we have a 3030 Concentrator.
Both AnyConnect client & Web VPN are highly desired.
I believe I've learned that 2 options are AIM-VPN/SSL module in a router, or ASA.
We have 2 routers we could consider using for a module - a 3825 (in production, provides Ethernet interface for an OptEMan link) and a 3745 (spare at the moment).
Obviously an ASA has way more abilities, but before making the price jump from a module & license for an existing router up to a whole new box, I want to be able to give my bosses some kind of cost/benefit analysis. Additionally, I'm not 100% sure that I figured it out right that the AIM/router option is correct... (50 million part numbers & options - even the inside engineers get muddled sometimes...)
So, my questions are:
1. Does the AIM-VPN/SSL-3 go in 3825 & 3745 routers? If yes, would it suck up too many resources in a router supporting an OptEMan?
2. Are there additional SSL-VPN features available in ASA that aren't available in AIM?
3. Are there additional ASA features besides VPN, firewall, IPS?
Thanks for any thoughts/knowledge...
