Just a quick question.
I wonder if anybody who is familiar with the ASA 55XX VPN concentrators could advise me if it is true that a ASA 55XX will only handle clients running Sun Solaris v 10 and will not support clients running Sun Solaris v 8 and Sun Solaris v 9.
It seems crazy that a relatively new piece of Cisco hardware would not support Solaris 8/9.
I have had a brief look around the Cisco product site but have not found any information regarding this issue.
Best Regards & TIA,
Yes, but make sure you use CDE (Common Desktop Environment) not OpenWindows.
Solaris 8 and 9 supports CDE and OpenWindows. Solaris 10 supports CDE (OpenWindows was dropped after Solaris 9) and Sun's Java Desktop System which I believe is based on GNOME which is popularly use by Linux.
I think Solaris 8 and 9 by default uses OpenWindows, you need to manually switch to CDE or configure it to use CDE. This could be the reason why some says SSL VPN is not supported in Soalris 8 and 9.
Much older Solaris versions only use OpenWindows.
