Re: Should Security Plus license change inside hosts number to u

mine says that the "inside hosts" is still limited to 10 connections.    Should I contact cisco then to see why this is not working properly?

Does "sh ver" show the following in the output?

This platform has an ASA 5505 Security Plus license.

If so, yes you would have to call and open a case with licensing so, they can investigate this further. Otherwise the activation key that you added did not take. You may have to do it again.

Do you have a link to contact information for Licensing?     I have searched cisco.com and cannot find it.

Pls. call 1-800-553-2447 and open a case. Give them the exact symptoms and ask for the case to be sent to the licensing team.

Alternatively you can e-mail licensing@cisco.com.

I'm afraid that it doesn't. You also have to buy a license to upgrade the number of users.

For example, to upgrade a base ASA5505 10 user license to unlimited user Security Plus you need to obtain both a Sec. Plus upgrade (ASA5505-SEC-PL=) and unlimited user upgrade (ASA5505-SW-10-UL).

If you look at the ASA5505 licensing matrix at Table 3.1 http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa82/configuration/guide/license.html#wp1306150 you will see that the Security Plus license has 10/50/unlimited concurrent user options.

What about the upgrade license ASA5505-SW-UL?   It says this is an unlimited user upgrade license.   Would this work as well?    Or do I have to find the one mentioned earlier?   Thank you!

I don't know about that license - any time I have upgraded a base ASA 5505 from 10 to unlimited it has been with ASA5505-SW-10-UL.
