Hi, hoping anyone can shed some light on this I am just getting more confused the more I try to work it out.
We have an ASA 5510 with the base license. We are needing to install IP Phones at remote workers homes, and I understand there are Cisco IP phones which have VPN clients built in to allow a tunnel to the central private network. IT appears that you can only use Anyconnect VPN for this, ans I am trying to work out what licencing upgrade we need to apply to the ASA, as the two Anyconnect licenses you get free on the ASA is not enough.
What I want to know is will the Anyconnect Essentials license work with these IP phones?
When I do a show version,
Licensed features for this platform:
Maximum Physical Interfaces : Unlimited
Maximum VLANs : 50
Inside Hosts : Unlimited
Failover : Disabled
VPN-DES : Enabled
VPN-3DES-AES : Enabled
Security Contexts : 0
GTP/GPRS : Disabled
SSL VPN Peers : 2
Total VPN Peers : 250
Shared License : Disabled
AnyConnect for Mobile : Disabled
AnyConnect for Linksys phone : Disabled
AnyConnect Essentials : Disabled
Advanced Endpoint Assessment : Disabled
UC Phone Proxy Sessions : 2
Total UC Proxy Sessions : 2
Botnet Traffic Filter : Disabled
This platform has a Base license.
It shows "AnyConnect for Linksys phone : Disabled", is this the same for Cisco IP Phones? Is this the specific licensing type I should be looking to get for Anyconnect on IP phones or will Essentials do?
Note: A "Premium" license and an "AnyConnect for Cisco VPN Phone" license is required.
The ASA 5510 output shows;
"AnyConnect for Linksys phone : Disabled"
Instead of the "AnyConnect for Cisco VPN phone : Disabled" which it looks like it requires. I have no idea why this is the case, is this available on my 5510 with a newer version of the ASA? Im currently on ASA 8.2(1) .
And secondly, for the premuim licensing, if I were to buy the 10 user premium licensing, (L-ASA-SSL-10), is the
"AnyConnect for Cisco VPN Phone" another type of license I would have to buy on top of that then ? Or is this just enabled once you buy the premium licensing?
And another thing, would installing a 10 user premuim license have any effect on my current IPSec remote access VPN that users are using? The 250 IPSec vpn seats/licenses remain inchanged and usable right?
