Yes apparently your understanding is correct. If you have a box running you could lab this up and see what happens after the 11'th simulatenous client tried to connect. Most probably the client wil see an error message.

Please rate if helpful.

Re: ASA5505 - Maximum VPN Clients

so, vpn "peers" and vpn "clients" are synonymous? if a small business with 25 employees has an asa5505, then no more than 10 employees can connect with the base license?

Just to make sure, we can have unlimited user/pass accounts but only 10 can connect simultaneously?

Re: ASA5505 - Maximum VPN Clients

Yes Robert, this limit does not apply to usernames (either local or on a AAA server).
