Im wondering if the Adaptive Security Services Module has some of the same function as a ASA 5500.
Can we configure a IPSec VPN tunnel, SSL VPN tunnel or IPS on a C6500 with ASA-SM or do we need a specific line card for those tasks?
In advance, thanks!
VPN and IPS are not supported features in the ASA-SM. There are no add-on cards for the ASA-SM at this time.
If you require VPN and/or IPS, you need to use the ASA appliance, not the Service Module. Note that VPN is not compatible with multiple context mode, even on the appliance.
