How do I block Traffic between VPN users?


We have a few VPN-Servers (Firepower 1140).

When a User connects he gets a static IP via RADIUS (e.g. or a address from a Adress-Pool configured on the server (e.g.

With our current configuration this allows traffic between the users ( <->

How can we prevent that?

On a Wireless LAN Controller C9800 I can set P2P Blocking Action to Drop.

Is there something similar for the ASA?

We mostly use AnyConnect, but there are a few users that use their own IPsec-Client.

On an ASA you can create two different zones for these networks and apply policy rules.


Sorry, I guess my issue is simpler than my example.

I also want to block traffic between and

you need all user can not talk to all users or specific one?

Yes, no one should be able to talk to any other vpn user.

You can use VPN filter, 
deny VPN pool1 -> VPN Pool2
permit VPN pool1 -> LAN (Inside)


To block traffic between VPN users on a Firepower 1140, you can create an access control policy and apply it to the VPN users.

  1. Go to Configuration > Firewall > Access Control and create a new policy.
  2. In the policy, create a rule that denies traffic between the VPN user subnet (e.g. and the VPN address pool subnet (e.g.
  3. Apply this policy to the VPN users by going to Configuration > Remote Access VPN > AnyConnect > Group Policy and selecting the policy in the "Access Control Policy" field.

Additionally, you can also use the "same-security-traffic permit inter-interface" command under the VPN configuration to block traffic between VPN users.

This will block all traffic between VPN users, regardless of the VPN connection type (AnyConnect or IPsec).

Please note that this will only work if VPN users are assigned IP addresses from different subnets.

I think that is not good enough for me.

@fhk-cwempe try using VPN Filter applied to the Remote Access VPN group policy to first deny traffic between the anyconnect user IP networks, then permit the rest of the required traffic.
