Are VPN Clients supported in multiple context mode?

Hi,

Recently our company has bought two Cisco ASA 5515-X firewalls for at our datacenter. I am new on configuring a Cisco ASA but sofar things are looking good. I have configured them both with HA (active/active) in multiple context mode. Currently they host two security contexts.

I want to configure VPN Client functionallity for Remote Access. As far as I know they come with two user licenses. But there is no VPN Client wizard available and I can't find a way to enable it.

- Is VPN Client supported in Multiple Context mode?

- What is AnyWhere Essentials vs Premium Peers?

Hi,

No form of VPN Client is supported when you are using an ASA in Multiple Context mode.

The only type of VPN supported in the newer 9.x softwares is L2L VPN / Site to Site VPN

This might answer the VPN Licensing related question

I never seem to remember it exactly myself even.

Thanks Jouni. That is exactly what I thought and what I was afraid of.
