Re: Anyconnect Premium License

Correct - you would need L-ASA-SSL-250.

Buying that will get you an activation code which, when installed on your appliance, will change

     AnyConnect Premium Peers          : 2      perpetual

To "250" (as opposed to the default 2).

Re: Anyconnect Premium License

The ASA-VPNS-500= and ASA-VPNP-5510= products are for a setup where you have a cluster of ASAs serving remote access browser-based (clientless) SSL VPN clients. The first item sets up your server to be able to had out licenses for 500 remote access users. The second item allows an ASA 5510 to participate in the cluster.

For more traditional remote access VPN clients (client-based SSL or IPSec VPN) you need AnyConnect (Essentials or Premium). The Premium version adds the ability to use Cisco Secure Desktop features.

Part numbers for those are:

AnyConnect Essentials:

L-ASA-AC-E-55XX= (5510 in your case)

AnyConnect Premium:

L-ASA-SSL-10, L-ASA-SSL-25, L-ASA-SSL-50, L-ASA-SSL-100, L-ASA-SSL-250, L-ASA-SSL-500, L-ASA-SSL-700, L-ASA-SSL-1000, L-ASA-SSL-2500, L-ASA-SSL-5000, or L-ASA-SSL-10K

Upgrade Part Numbers: L-ASA-SSL-10-25, L-ASA-SSL-25-50, L-ASA-SSL-50-100, L-ASA-SSL-100-250, L-ASA-SSL-100-500, L-ASA-SSL-100-750, L-ASA-SSL-100-1K, L-ASA-SSL-250-500, L-ASA-SSL-500-750, L-ASA-SSL-500-5K, L-ASA-SSL-750-1K, L-ASA-SSL-1K-2500, L-ASA-SSL-2500-5K, L-ASA-SSL-5K-10K

If you want to do Advanced Endpoint Assessment, that is an additional license - L-ASA-ADV-END-SEC - which has AnyConnect Premium as a prerequisite.

Anyconnect Premium License

Thanks for the information. I just want to double confirm. I don't want to order the wrong license. The name are too close to get confuse.

I want to get name straight because I need to get a quote for clientless and client SSL VPN.

I only have a single ASA 5510. If I want the clientless and client SSL VPN should I be listing these

AnyConnect Premium (client SSL VPN) L-ASA-SSL-250

Browser-based clientless SSL VPN     ASA-VPNS-500=

Is that all I need to get the clientless and client SSL VPN going? No additional license on top of that? Is 500 clientless SSL VPN is the minimum? Nothing less than that?

Re: Anyconnect Premium License

AnyConnect client-based SSL VPN requires only L-ASA-AC-E-5510= for a single 5510.

Clientless (browser-based) SSL VPN requires one of the AnyConnect Premium licenses whose part numbers I listed above. They are available as the names suggest in increments of 10, 25, 50, 100 etc.

The ASA 5510 allows a maximum of 250 Anyconnect Premium clients so the 500+ licensing levels are not applicable for you.

The ASA-VPNS-500= part number is only for when you are setting up a cluster of ASAs to share licenses across multiple appliances. Typically you would only do that with larger installations thus the starting number of 500 in that scenario.

NOTE: AnyConnect Essentials and AnyConnect Premium licenses can NOT be run simultaneously on the same appliance. Once you go the Premium route you are tied to the Premium per-user licensing and the per-appliance model of Essentials is no longer an option.

Anyconnect Premium License

I understand now. I only need L-ASA-SSL-100-250 and that will give me client and clientless SSL VPN capabilites.

Not to confuse people. I put the upgrade part number. I will need L-ASA-SSL-250.

Hi Marvin, can you explain me

Hi Marvin, can you explain me correctly/exactly what is the difference/definition between the AnyConnect premium peers and AnyConnect Essentials.

My ASA version is: ASA5585-SSP-40

AnyConnect premium peers: 2

AnyConnect Essentials: 1000

 

So i want to configure ASA to support VPN ssl connection.. and i want to know if i have the correct licenses..

 

 

Hall of Fame Guru

All ASAs include the 2

All ASAs include the 2 Premium peer licenses. They are mostly for evaluation and the occasional network admin remote access.

You have the purchased license for AnyConnect Essentials. You can use it for remote access SSL VPN (client-based) just fine.

Premium licenses add the capability for clientless SSL VPN (plus a few other less common features).

An ASA has to run one type or the other even if you have both licenses - when you activate the "anyconnect-esentials" command, it disables the Premium features globally on the ASA.

Hi Marvin,

Arman,

Arman,

There is no upgrade SKU for the 2 base licenses as they are included with the base ASA image. So the PAK you have is the right one to go to 250 premium users. The part number is now end of sales but it can still be redeemed for an activation key.  

I notice your ASA has Essentials licensed at the 750 users (platform limit) level. The Premium features cannot be simultaneously active with Essentials. You can use one or the other but not both as the 'AnyConnect-essentials' command disables premium-only features like clientless. 

Hi Marvin,

Hi Marvin,

You're welcome Arman.

You're welcome Arman.

1. That's correct (although you had a typo at 'webvpn'). 

2. Yes. No reload is necessary (although it's a good idea just to ensure that all is in order prior to the possible event of some future unscheduled reload). 

Thanks a lot marvin. will let

Thanks a lot marvin. will let you know how it goes with the upgrade.
