In my system VPN connectivity is running fine. VPN configure in my ASA 5520. Remote users access the VPN and work in LAN.

But Today and before some of day suddenly useres can not connect in VPN , messeage promt " Secure VPN connection terminated by Client" and then time ping outside interface from internet and ping status is ok. after some hours pass then I access In MY ASA via SSH from outside and nothing do , just check the outside interface. Then after VPN is running.

Hello Biplob,

How frequent does that occur? At the the time of incidence, try connecting VPN from a trusted PC, with trusted, i mean isolated from all possible virus activity, or having multiple interface etc. Enable logs and once you get the error again in that clean client, post the logs.

A responding interface while VPN is down makes me think of a possible bug in IOS version affecting IPSEC engine. Check your IOS version against IPSEC specific bugs in cisco bug toolkit.

Hi Husy.

Thanks your Response.Its not frequent occur but weekly or twice weekly once time its occur. The incident time I try connect from trust pc which i always connected VPN and try that others pc.

yesterday same incident occur at 3pm, we can access then after 2 hours when access the ASA via SSH in outside then after its work fine in VPN. You can suggest which IOS I can load to avoid this.

Is it possible that you had reached the maximum amount of VPN peers that your ASA is licensed for at that time?

Hi Jiohn

when the incident occurs that time no user logged in VPN and MY VPN user not more then 15 which increase in future.

so its the VPN peer license problem , I have unlimited License.
