ASA5505 to PIX501 Easy VPN - no authentication?

Hey gang,

I've got a working Easy VPN setup between a 5505 (server) and 501 (client) based on this config:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_configuration_example09186a00808a61f4.shtml

It works fine.  But, how do I do this without requiring a username/password for the connection?  The problem is that I'm replacing a 501 server with the new 5505, and all the remote client 501s are already configured not to user a username/password.  That works fine with a 501 as the host but I'm not sure how to do it with the 5505.

Thanks!

The server is the ASA5505, and the client is the PIX 501.  What I'm trying to do is eliminate the need for username/password.  I already have a bunch of remote 501s in the field configured to NOT user username/password when connecting to the current 501 server.  When I replace the host 501 with this 5505, I don't want to have to re-config the remotes.  But so far in the lab I can't get it the 5505<>501 VPN to work without username/password.

No, those commands are for support of the software-based VPN desktop clients.

Hi,

See if this part of the documentation helps.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa72/configuration/guide/ezvpn505.html#wp1010896

If this doesn't help, please provide us a santised copy of the configuration on the 5505 and 501 so that we can review the stuff and suggest a few things.


Cheers,


Nash.
