ASA 5505 and AnyConnect licensing

Folks--pardon my ignorance, but trying to make sense of the documentation for this is all but impossible...

I've got a client who's looking to enable SSL VPN on an ASA 5505.  Looking at the output of the unit, it's got a Base license, AnyConnect Essentials is in a disabled state, but it also says 'SSL VPN Peers:  25'.  Does that mean they've got 25 SSL VPN users configured?  Is that the max for that size of ASA?  Do they need the AC essentials license to make it functional?  Do they need Sec Plus for the SSL VPNs to work?\

They're not going to be doing any clientless or the NAC lite i don't think they need premium (please correct if i'm wrong, of course).



ASA 5505 and AnyConnect licensing

Dear Scott,

Could you please attach the "show version" (you can remove the serial number of the ASA) and the "show vpn-sessiondb summary" outputs?

Thanks in advance.

Re: ASA 5505 and AnyConnect licensing

Sounds like you have the Anyconnect premium license installed which means you can use both Anyconnect and clientless Anyconnect for 25 concurrent users.
