VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

I actually really like the SRP 500 platform. However, it is missing a feature that the UC520, the 800 series ISRs, the SA500 series, and Cisco Small Business WRV series routers are not. It is the ability to connect to the router with a VPN client. Even though I can port forward if it is being used with the UC500, there is no way around this problem in a standalone situation. Support for QuickVPN, Easy VPN, and/or AnyConnect VPN clients is a must have if we want to deploy this standalone. Are there plans to support QuickVPN, Easy VPN, or AnyConnect on the SRP 500 platform?

Hi John,

Sorry for the late response.

Currently the SRP520 only supports point to point IPSec VPN.

We have VPN server (for Cisco VPN clients) on our roadmap.

Any Updates on VPN remote access for SRP 500 series ? is it possible to connect with IPSecuritas or any other VPN clients to connect to this platform?

Hi

Please let me know if there is an estimated availability date for this feature.

Thanks

Some time early in 2012 is the current plan.

Re: VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

So not even the Cicso v5.0 VPN client can connect to an SRP527W?  What's different between that type of connection and to a fixed endpoint?  The option for how to identify the remote end includes 'IP Address', 'FQDN' or 'Any'.  Wouldn't that last one suggest a random remote client?

Re: VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

Hi Richard,

The Cisco VPN client works with a Cisco Easy VPN Server, not a standard IPSec peer as we have in the case of the SRP500.

"Any" would allow any compatible remote client to associate.  This would typically be used when the remote router/client uses DHCP to get its IP address.

So just to reiterate, the SRP does not currently have a VPN server feature that would be appropriate for user remote access.

Re: VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

Early 2012 is still the plan...

VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

I have upgraded my SRP521W to the latest FW (v1.01.26) which includes the VPN server functionality. VPN server works w/o any problems.

However there is a feature I am missing which makes the VPN server useless (in my case):

Once the VPN client has connected to the VPN server the connected device has access to ALL VLANs as well as the WAN.

--> is there a feature planned to restrict VPN user's VLAN access (e.g. user1: VLAN1, VLAN3; user2: WAN, VLAN1, etc...)?

Re: VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

Andrew - Is there any news on this??

I have just purchased a new SRP527W but still no VPN client support

When I tried to load the firmware that I am running on another SRP527W (1.01.19 (VP004) Jan 7 2011) It failed!!!

I REALLY need the VPN Client Support!  And now have an SRP527W that is useless to us.  I don't want to have to install another brand of router, but as the client NEEDS a VPN client supported router, I am going to have no choice!!

VPN client support on the SRP 500 platform

download the latest FW for your device from the Cisco SMB support webpage (1.01.26, 29-FEB-2012) and flash it to your SRP527W. This will enable VPN Client Support on your device(s).

i hope this link works:

THANKS!!  That did the trick!! 

Also  - Slightly off topic, is there anyway I can see ADLS connection stats, like connection time etc??

Hi John,

Yes - this is on a hidden page.  Once you log in to the GUI, change the URL page name to "dsldiag.asp".
