Allow Unlimited Concurrent Connections

We have ASA, running 8.0(5).  We setup one user account for several people in the same department to login to Cisco VPN client.  Is there a way to allow unlimited concurent connections?   Would you recommend using one account for several people in the same department?  We have one account for "sales" for all sales staff, one account "engineer" for all engineers, one account "tech support" for all support staff.

Thanks.

Re: Allow Unlimited Concurrent Connections

Hi,

If you have a VPN user let's say cisco:

username cisco attributes

  vpn-simultaneous-logins ?

<0-2147483647>  Maximum number of simultaneous logins allowed

I don't think you should use the same account for several people because if you need to track down someone, you can't (because several people share the account).

Laura,

I don't think there's a default because a ''sh run all user'' does not show me any default value for this setting, and also when typing the command it gives you the option to type any value between
  <0-2147483647>  Maximum number of simultaneous logins allowed

But again, does not shows a default.

Laura,

I don't believe there's a limit either.

For example, if it's an ASA 5505 it will accept either 10 or 25 IPsec VPN connections (depending on the license).

If it's a 5510 it will accept 250 and so on...

The ASA counts the amount of IPsec connections and I believe it does not matter how many users you have in a single profile.

Do you know the default setting for concurrent connections?  Thanks.

Re: Allow Unlimited Concurrent Connections

Thanks for your prompt response and information.  I am assigning each user an account per your recommendation.  I will make a change for each department.  For now, do you know how many concurrent users are allowed per account?  Is it unlimited concurrent connections?  Thanks.
