I am new to ASA firewalls and need some help please
I was asked to install an asa 5505 firewall for our local community centre (some database they need protecting).
So off I went on to the internet and sources a ASA 5505 of a company.
The shiny box arrived and I hooked it on to the network outside facing (public)
And on consoling into the box noticed many features disabled for the firewall. And I was then told I need to get an activation key (funny the traders don't tell you that).
Please can some explain where I can get an activation key from, how much does it cost and how long will this take.
And is there something else I need as well to get this box online and the related costs.
Really appreciate your help
Hi Taaj ,
It depends of which feature you want enable on your ASA , VPN features ,maximum users , maxium vlans , etc. You can confirm the ASA licenses with the command "Show activation-key".
Check below for more information:
PD: Next time post this type of queries as a Discussion.
Hope it helps
Go to cisco license page, check your ASA and then put PAK number for requesting activation license.
if you didn't have PAK number, you can request demo / evaluation activation key.
check this out : Cisco License
Maximum Physical Interfaces : 8 VLANs : 3, DMZ RestrictedInside Hosts : 10 Failover : DisabledVPN-DES : Enabled VPN-3DES-AES : Enabled VPN Peers : 10 WebVPN Peers : 2 Dual ISPs : Disabled VLAN Trunk Ports : 0 AnyConnect for Mobile : Disabled AnyConnect for Linksys phone : Disabled Advanced Endpoint Assessment : Disabled UC Proxy Sessions : 2
