cisco asa 5500 vpn sessions

Hi there

it may sound like a trivial question, but does anybody know what exactly means
"Maximum site-to-site and remote access VPN sessions"

lets take ASA 5505
it is stated, that it supports up to 10 sessions

does it mean that i can interconnect 10 of these devices together over VPN with some count of PC's behind each of them

or maybe it means, that only 10 PC's can communicate over VPN *simultaneously*, even if i have 10 ASA's interconnected together like in previous example

thank you for advice
Andrew

For site to site VPN a session is a connection between 2 firewall/VPN devices.

For remote access VPN a session is a PC with VPN session to the ASA.

Thank you for reply

but what is session in the case of site-to-site vpn?

Is this a session between computers connected over vpn,

or may be, this is a session between firewall/vpn devices?

As Rick said session means for site to site between the devices at each location for remote to site pc to vpn concentrator.

Hope to Help !!
