Can someone clarify for me the SSL VPN/AnyConnect licensing for the ASA 5520? Specifically, the differences between the AnyConnect Essentials and AnyConnect Premium. Our current licensing looks like this:
Licensed features for this platform:
Maximum Physical Interfaces : Unlimited
Maximum VLANs : 150
Inside Hosts : Unlimited
Failover : Active/Active
VPN-DES : Enabled
VPN-3DES-AES : Enabled
Security Contexts : 2
GTP/GPRS : Disabled
SSL VPN Peers : 2
Total VPN Peers : 750
Shared License : Disabled
AnyConnect for Mobile : Disabled
AnyConnect for Cisco VPN Phone : Disabled
AnyConnect Essentials : Disabled
Advanced Endpoint Assessment : Disabled
UC Phone Proxy Sessions : 2
Total UC Proxy Sessions : 2
Botnet Traffic Filter : Disabled
This platform has an ASA 5520 VPN Plus license.
I assume this means we have just the 2 "free trial" SSL VPN licenses, and nothing else.
I'd like to add 25 or perhaps 50 SSL VPN Licenses and be able to use a combination of clientless, thin client and full client AnyConnect groups. Would the "ASA5500-SSL-25" (or 50) be the correct license I need to purchase?
The essentials license is per-device and only allows full-tunneling.
If you need aditional features like Secure Desktop, clientless SSL and other optional features like shared licenses, you must go for the Premium License.
