Show Active VPN users

Unanswered Question
Sep 16th, 2010

I have configured IPSec VPN Client and gave access to 10 people in Cisco 2811 Router, I created their usernames and passwords to get access of company network via VPN.

I want to check, which user is connected and for how much time?

Please advise

You can also use :-

sh vpn-sessiondb remote ( for current users connected to the asa at the time of issuing the command).

That's indeed the command I was looking for, but it seems is not an ASA is a router.

I issued the
following command

MTL-2811#show crypto session summary
Group vpnclient has 1 connections


It doesn't show that which user is connected..... I mean username

then I issued

MTL-2811#sh crypto session username ?
% Unrecognized command
MTL-2811#sh crypto session username

no such command .. Please advise...
