ASA SSL VPN Implementation

I would like to implement SSL VPN on out

ASA 5520 it currently has Version ASA 7.05

How do I verify that I have the correct license? I understand that the original ASA version had the license free but upgrades require a purchased license. TAC claims that a minimum 7.1 version is required. I guess that I need clarification, I am confusing WebVPN and SSL VPN are they 2 difrenet products?

Thanks in advance


Re: ASA SSL VPN Implementation

Hello delliot,

SSL VPN and Web VPN are the same terminologies. Since the VPN is accessed over HTTP or Web, they used to call it a WEB VPN. They also re-named it to SSL VPN since it uses SSL as the transport layer technology. So, you dont need to get confused on this...

I guess all versions of ASA supports SSL VPN. But by default you will just have 2 licenses of SSL VPN inbuilt on the box. If you need more licenses, you can procure the following product codes:






Just give a "show version" and see if you have the SSL VPN licenses inbuilt on the ASA box. You can see 2 licenses included with the box. you can also try configuring some SSL VPN commands to see if the box supports it or not !!!!

Hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found useful..
