ASA 5510 VPN License Inquiry - Urgent

Dear Sir,

We’ve ordered ASA 5510 with security plus license as below description:


ASA 5510 Appliance with SW,   5FE, DES


ASA 5510 Security Plus License   w/ HA, GE, more VLANs + conns

The license details on the appliance shows as the below,

Failover                        : Enabled 

Encryption-DES                  : Enabled 

Encryption-3DES-AES             : Disabled

Security Contexts               : Default 

GTP/GPRS                        : Disabled

AnyConnect Premium Peers        : Default 

Other VPN Peers                 : Default 

Advanced Endpoint Assessment    : Disabled

AnyConnect for Mobile           : Disabled

AnyConnect for Cisco VPN Phone  : Disabled

Shared License                  : Disabled

UC Phone Proxy Sessions         : Default 

Total UC Proxy Sessions         : Default 

AnyConnect Essentials           : Disabled

Botnet Traffic Filter           : Disabled

Intercompany Media Engine       : Disabled 

I’ve noticed that the 3DES is disabled, do I need to order another license to use 3DES or not ?!

Also, I need 2 ~ 5 branches to connect simultaneously and have VPN access on their laptops to the main branch via vpn software, which VPN software I should use and is our license enough or I should order another license,

Please advise !!? it is urgent.

Hi Mohammad,

Check on your activation keys provided. You can update the activation keys on ASDM.

Configuration > Device Management > Licensing > Activation Key

The router was ordered with license only for DES. If you want 3DES then you will need another license. When you get the other license then you can use it to generate an activation key. And as suggested in the post above you can then use ASDM to apply the activation key.

The 3DES-license doesn't have to be "ordered". That license is free of charge and you get it with your serial# under
