Re: Anyconnect not working

In general it is safe to post configs on these forums. You probably want to disguise sensitive information such as public IP addresses and passwords, but otherwise it should not be an issue.

 

Yes this is a different issue. The key part of the output is this

 Session could not be established: session limit of 2 reached.

It appears that there are already 2 sessions established and you are not allowed more than 2 sessions. This has to do with the licensing for AnyConnect. By default the ASA has licensing for 2 sessions, which would allow you to do some testing while you implement the VPN client. Than as you are ready to put it into use you would need to purchase and install additional licensing for the AnyConnect client. You can verify the number of licenses by looking into the output of show version. You can verify whether there are existing AnyConnect sessions using this command

Re: Anyconnect not working

There is an option in AnyConnect to only accept connection to a head end with a trusted SSL certificate (this is the default behavior) or an option to accept connection to a head end with a non trusted SSL certificate (especially a self signed certificate). Your symptoms suggest that you are attempting to connecto to a head end with a self signed certificate. Can you tell us whether the head end you are connecting to has a certificate signed by a public Certificate Authority or has a self signed certificate?

Re: Anyconnect not working

Hi Richard,

 

Thanks,

 

There was no certificates, either from CA or Local, I have now installed the local certificate and asked the user to test and confirm, I missed this certificate step, I will update you once I get reply from the user

 

Thanks for the heads-up

Re: Anyconnect not working

It is easy to miss the need to install an SSL certificate. If you use a self signed certificate then AnyConnect will still generate a warning message about the certificate not being really trusted. But if you disable the option in AnyConnect for strict enforcement of certificate then AnyConnect will allow the connection to be established.

Re: Anyconnect not working

Hi Richard,

 

Thanks, I didnt realize about that, yes it is license issue and I will buy the license

 

I have another issue with different firewall, it has licenses but authentication is not working, getting the below error 

6Oct 02 201715:03:49113005    AAA user authentication Rejected : reason = Unspecified : server = 10.47.20.21 : user = ***** : user IP = 86.98.10.198

 

I will log separate post now 

 

Thanks

Re: Anyconnect not working

Thanks for confirming that my suggestion that it was a license issue was correct. When you do obtain and install the appropriate license I hope that you will find that AnyConnect works well. Thank you for maring this discussion as solved.
