Re: ASA 5505 config needed for iPhone AnyConnect vpn connection
Let me first say I'm a home user and the reason I'm using the ASA 5505 is so I can access everything inside my home network via my iphone/ipad. I replaced my RVS4000 router because it could not support iphone vpn.
I've been fighting this for a couple weeks now. I have the ASA5505-BUN-K9. I was told that this model included just a basic license, but that would cover me to make the iphone connect and a laptop connect; no more then 2 or 3 VPNs ever connecting. So no additional license was needed. In fact no license came with it other then what was "built in".
First, is this true? In this post the AnyConnect Essentials and AnyConnect Mobile license was also needed??? If so, what specifically do I need to ask for so I can purchase the license I need?
A Cisco rep helped me get the ASA configured so I could get my network working again and access to the internet. It worked when I powered it up, but after running the setup wizard it didn't. He had me use the command line to add a gateway which for whatever reason the wizard broke when I ran it.
I tried the VPN wizard and failed badly (now that might be a license issue too). Anyway, for the instructions you listed in the link, how strictly do I follow the steps? Word for word? Remember I'm a simple user who knows some basics but I'm not a network engineer. My home network is all in the 192.168.1.x range with the ASA at 192.168.1.1 and the internet IP being feed via a cable modem. During the VPN wizard attempt I told it to use 22.214.171.124 to 192.168.1.130 as the range to assign to incoming VPN connections. I want the iphone to be able to see and use all internal network devices (computers, NAS,...). There was another post I remember seeing something along the lines that a command was needed to enable NAT-T over IPSEC or something?
