ASA IPSEC License

Hi.

Could someone tell me what we need to purchase (additional options etc) to run IPSEC between 2 ASA 5520 firewalls.

Can this be done between any ASA 5520 or do we need to buy additional VPN license possibly?

If you look at the output of show version from your ASA it will have information about current licensing. If you post that information we could give you better answers.

I believe that every ASA comes with at least some capability to do VPNs. While there might be some possibility of additional license requirements, if this would be the first IPSec VPN that the ASAes are doing then I would doubt that you would need additional licenses.

Re: ASA IPSEC License

as far as i can see you can have as many IPSEC VPNs as you like but for SSL vpns you need to purchase separate licenses. I think this is correct?

Some of the ASA licenses restrict the number of IPSec peers as well as restricting the number of SSL. Perhaps it would help if you would post the output of show version from your ASA?

Re: ASA IPSEC License

Several place I have looked indicate that the ASA5520-BUN-K9 supports up to 750 IPSec peers. The SSL is much more tightly limited and likely to require additional licenses. But you indicate that you are planning IPSec VPN so I believe that there is no issue for you.
