As far as I am aware all current version of ASA code do not support VPN's or Dynamic Routing in multi context mode, only in single routed mode.

And I have not heard anything regards future support either.

Hi,

All the ASA model will support VPN IPSEC / SSL VPN / dynamic routing.

From you can configure context from ASA 5520 model onwards

One more important thing is that , if you want context to be configure then , the same ASA box cannot be used to configure VPN.

find the url for more info

Unsupported Features

Multiple context mode does not support the following features:

Dynamic routing protocols

Security contexts support only static routes. You cannot enable OSPF, RIP, or EIGRP in multiple context mode.

I know this is an older thread but when will the ASA support VPN in multicontext mode?

We are looking to do a managed firewall solution with the ASA but no VPN support is a deal breaker.

Instead we maybe looking down the Checkpoint or Juniper Netscreen path.

Are there any plans to have this support?  Are there any alternatives?

Has there been any progress on this? Would be very interested to know when VPN & dynamic routing will be available in multi-context mode.

I just read over the release notes for ASA 8.4 and it mentions nothing.  Doesnt look like it will happen in this release.

ROBERTO TACCON Thu, 05/26/2011 - 09:43

Hello Cisco,

when (it's possible to know when will be available ) in multiple context mode ASA will support the VPN IPSEC / SSL VPN /dynamic routing ?

and about the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module

Q. Are there any software features available in Cisco ASA 5500 Series appliances that are not supported in the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module?
A. Yes. While at FCS the ASA Services Module will use the feature set of Cisco ASA Software Version 8.4.1, not all features will be enabled. Specifically, VPN capabilities and Unified Communications licenses will not be available on the ASA Services Module at FCS. All other major features of Cisco ASA Software Version 8.4.1 will be available to the ASA Services Module at FCS.


Q. Does the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module support VPNs?
A. Not at FCS. The ASA Services Module is fully capable of supporting VPNs, but Cisco ASA Software has not yet been certified to work with VPNs.

when (it's possible to know when will be available ) in multiple context mode the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module will support the VPN IPSEC / SSL VPN /dynamic routing ?

Hi,

Is there an update on the above as this is an extremely important features which are missing with Cisco? But other vendors provide.

Hello all!

From what I have heard there is an coming release 9.0 in the autumn that will support L2L VPN, but no AnyConnect support yet.

craigbruenderman Thu, 08/30/2012 - 12:03

Can anyone confirm L2L multi context in 9.0?

Marvin Rhoads Thu, 08/30/2012 - 20:36

L2L VPN with multi-context configuration is supposed to be in 9.0 ("coming soon").
