Can someone please advise how Cisco determines the 50 user license limit.
A company I do business with has a Cisco 501 which is used ONLY for remote vpn (Windows XP - using PPTP) users to connect to internal hosts.
Internal users are routed to the internet via a PFsense firewall.
They have 25 remote users nationally & internationally but they have a problem getting any more than 12-16 remote users connected concurrently.
If there are multiple internal hosts being accessed by the remote users, how are the licenses counted i.e. is it 50 x unique source ip addresses or is it
based on session limits in the translation (xlate) table.
I have done a bit of reading and have read differing views so am a bit confused.
I have been asked to help troubleshoot this problem & have asked for details of the Cisco 501 config, error messages, IOS etc...BUT Im told that everything works fine EXCEPT that they hit a limit of approx 12-16 remote users connected concurrently so I was wondering if this was possibly a licensing problem?
