With the PIX and the ASA the number of peers is specified in the license and limited to the number specified in the license (so to support more peers you need to upgrade the license). In my experience the IOS implementation does not tie the number of peers to anything in the license. So if you purchase a feature set for your IOS router that supports IPSec/SSL VPN then that is your license for IPSec and SSL peering (no separate license is required).

I found a data sheet with the following information about caacity of the VPN accelerator on the 1841. I hope this answers your question:

The Cisco IPsec and SSL VPN AIM supports up to 800 tunnels on the Cisco 1841,

Here is the link if you want more details:

Hi,


Do I need to buy separate license for VPN? How about ssl-vpn and ipsec-vpn for IOS VPN?


Thanks.
