Maximum VPN Sessions through ASA 5510 firewall

Hi,

In our Organisation ASA 5510 firewall is configured for Ipsec VPN.

When i check the Maximum IPsec VPN sessions,it is showing as 50 thru command

VPN# sh vpn-sessiondb summary

Active Sessions: Session Information:

LAN-to LAN :0

Peak Concurrent : 50

Remote Access :37 Concurrent Limit : 50

WebVPN :0

WebVPN Limit : 50

Email Proxy :0 Cumulative Sessions : 12890

Total Active Sessions :37 Weighted Active Load : 37

Percent Session Load : 74%

As per above statistics can u briefly explain what is Concurrent Limit : 50,

Cumulative Sessions : 12890.

Here Concurrent sessions limit showing as 50 means only 50 Users can establish VPN connection? but as per Cisco ASA 5510 can establish 250 conections.Is there any License Issue?

Pls help me regarding?

Can u explain what will be the reasons to terminates the Connection establish,Is sessions limit is a resaon?

Pls help?

Tnks

Ramu,

Two possible reasons I can think of, one could be your firewall current license, is it base license or Sec Plus ? do show version to confirm is Sec Plus lincese.

or it could be asa code - perhaps a bug misreading the output.

Hi,

It is a Base License as per Sh Version.So is it Supports only 50 Ip sec VPN Connections?

Re: Maximum VPN Sessions through ASA 5510 firewall

Ramu, actually as per link bellow, either base or sec plus license should support up to 250..what version of code are you running, will double check this again.

Re: Maximum VPN Sessions through ASA 5510 firewall

according to this the 5510 base license should support 250 vpn peers:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa82/license/license82.html#wp166690

but if i configure one using the ordering tool here on cisco's website, it does actually say 50 vpn peers. i'm not sure why there's a discrepancy with all of this.

Re: Maximum VPN Sessions through ASA 5510 firewall

Hi Steven, indeed interesting seen this and Ramu's issue, I tried loading the 7.0.7 GD code off an offline asa5510 to see output.. but box is under sec plus license, I am suspecting is code restrictions than a marketing typo .

By running 7.0.7 GD code it knocked down 100 VPN peers bringing it down from 250 to 150 limit .

This output is under version 8.0.4

Re: Maximum VPN Sessions through ASA 5510 firewall

Hi,

Take a look at this configuration example for WebVPN on ASA, I think it might help you configure it on your device:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/products_configuration_example09186a00806ea271.shtml

Which version are you running? I believe Anyconnect is only supported on 8.x and later releases.

Anyconnect 2.0: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/vpn_client/anyconnect/anyconnect20/release/notes/cvcrn200.html#wp608673

Anyconnect 2.3: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/vpn_client/anyconnect/anyconnect23/release/notes/anyconnect23rn.html#wp608673

Please rate useful posts.

Regards,

Guilherme
