We have bought a Cisco ASA 5505 firewall with base license. We are confused about the base license provide for 10 users. I am trying to understand what method Cisco uses to calculate license:
For example there are 3 hosts connected to the inside network of ASA currently: Output below:
Result of the command: "show arp"
inside 220.127.116.11 0012.3f3a.4524 140
inside 18.104.22.168 001e.3732.4fac 438
inside 22.214.171.124 0021.861e.c1b6 465
outside 126.96.36.199 001b.54cb.bed9 2
and non of users are authenticated:
Result of the command: "show uauth"
Current Most Seen
Authenticated Users 0 6
Authen In Progress 0 64
But when we do show local-host we find out that 6 license are already used.
Result of the command: "show local-host"
Detected interface 'outside' as the Internet interface. Host limit applies to all other interfaces.
Current host count: 6, towards licensed host limit of: 10
Interface outside: 5 active, 33 maximum active, 0 denied
Interface inside: 6 active, 8 maximum active, 0 denied
Interface _internal_loopback: 0 active, 2 maximum active, 0 denied
Can you please explain what method Cisco uses to count the number of license?
