I have configured my ASA5520 to act as VPN server. It accepts connections from the internet and then it authenticates the user to a Windows 2008 Server via Radius.
Everything works fine if I use the VPN client embedded in Microsoft Windows. Conversely, if I try to configure Cisco VPN Client, I cannot find where to define the PSK string.
Wher is this option supposed to be?
So you are trying to configure the Cisco VPN Client and create a connection profile for the VPN configured on the ASA?
You startup the VPN Client
Then create a new profile with the "New" button
And press Save to save the new connection profile
Hi JouniForss ,
I am trying to connect the laptop to my Cisco ASA5520. I've tried to do what you suggest but I can't get connected :-(. Furthermore... if the password refers to the PSK, I have two questions:
1. Where do I tipe name/password of the user?
2. Why does it ask me for the tunnel-group name? Microsoft VPN does not...
You enter the username and password when you try to connect with the profile you created above.
I have never used the Microsoft VPN so I cant really comment on that. But in the Cisco VPN Client you need to define the "tunnel-group" name and the PSK in the mentioned fields.
The above steps I listed are just for creating the connection profile for the VPN Client. After you have created the profile you can then use it in the main window to connect.
