VPN Licensing query

Hi All,

My company wants to place a Cisco Router on to a new lease line setup. With the requirement of

1) 3 site-to-site VPN to directors.

2) 30-40 client vpn from marketing team.

3) MPLS to other branch office

4) Also act as firewall.

I've suggested placing a Cisco 2951-HSEC/K9. It says recommended no. of users upto 150 and for 2921 its 100. Some forums suggest VPNs are part of the HSEC incense.

But am still not sure whether do I need to buy additional VPN licenses to cover-up all users or not. If yes, what kind of licenses shall we go for?

We have found FL-SSLVPN25-K9 compatible VPN license pack for Cisco 29XX but can we also use IPSec VPNs as well if we buy this pack. If not is there a pack that give us options to use both technologies. Are these licenses one-off or yearly subscription?

Also can Cisco 2921-HSEC/K9 do the job for us? We are use 1 LAN interface and 1 WAN along with HWIC ADSL for failover.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Kuldeep

VPN Licensing query

Hello Kuldeep,

Not sure if you found the answer in the meantime. For site to site VPN, you would need the security packets but for SSL VPN, staring from 15.0(1)M, you need a separate license as well. This link will explain it in more details:

When it comes to the license, I can only see licenses for 25 and 100 users:
