ip pool for Remote Access VPN's


I am wondering if there is a way to influence asa when defining the ip pools without mask for remote access vpn's.

example: if I define a pool like below, only 2 clients can connect to my asa using vpn client.

ip local pool TEST mask

what if i define a pool like below without mask, will the ASA let 4 clients connect instead of 2 ?

ip local pool TEST

ip pool for Remote Access VPN's


yes with a subnet mask of 252, u will be gettign only 2 hosts

As far as i know u need to add subnet mask while defining pools and is mandatory

If you assign addresses from a non-local subnet, then you will need to add pools that fall on subnet boundaries to make adding routes for these networks easier

subnet mask is optional atleast in 8.2 code , I have just checked the command reference guide.

I have defined the pool with a mask of ( ip local pool  TEST mask ) instead and ASA assigns  the network and broadcast addresses too. But does this have any kind effect on client connectivity ?
