My current situation is that I am doing a project at university that will be using 3 Cisco ASAs. I have been given two ASA5510s and one ASA5520. They were given to me with version 7.0 images on them with ASDM 5.0, this i was having issues with ASDM on windows 7 so i decided to upgrade to a newer version. (i worked in industry last year and still had copies of the images). i installed asa822-k8.bin and ASDM 625-53.bin and after the install had no HTTPS access to the devices. After a little digging i found that somehow during the upgrade, the VPN-3DES-AES feature had been disabled.
After a little more digging i found a link that said the licence was free, the steps through this required a PAK code and that and that’s where i got stuck. Unfortunately the university does not have the PAK codes for the devices. Is there any trial licence available for VPN-3DES-AES? Or any other way to get the licences?
Ummm, just becasue you have an image doesn't entitle you to install it on any hardware you come across.
Sorry but if you don't have a support contract on the ASA 5510 and 5520s you're using, I believe you're violating the license agreement (which you agreed to when you initially downloaded the image) by installing the image on them. Version 7.0 is old (ca. 2007-2008) and Cisco doesn't provide free / trial upgrades for ASA system software. A support contract is the legitimate way to keep your software current.
