Cisco Firewall :: 5505 Remote VPN And Backup ISP License
Oct 29, 2012
I have 5505 license with default 10 user license, want to increment the remote vpn user to 50 user license;will it be on yearly basis.Another question, can we purchase security plus license for configuring the failover config ,as well support the 50 user license on the same..
I am working with a client that currently has an ASA 5505 with two ISPs for failover using a tracked interface. I would like to configure logging so that the ASA will email us when the Primary ISP goes down and fails over to the backup. Here is what I have so far...
I'm new to ASA and bought a used one from ebay but I cannot connect to the ASDM - I get an error in all the browsers.
Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s).
(Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)
Having browsed the support forums and Google - it seems I need the 3DES license. I have obtained an activation key from Cisco and applied it to my ASA 5505 however I get a warning about the device is licensed for a higher software level. the license on the ASA is Security plus. When I apply the activation key from Cisco most of the features are disabled.
I'm having problems configuring an asa 8.2(1) with a backup isp. I followed the asdm instructions in this document: [URL]
I have my backup interface configured as DHCP and the static routes set. Pinging the gateway and other external IP address from the backup interfaces works normally. I have also tried configuring the backup interface as a static address but got the same results.
When removing the primary wan link, all traffic stops. When I ping a external DNS, I get these errors in the log: portmap translation creation failed for udp src inside: 192.168.13.23 dst backup:126.96.36.199_type 8, code0)
I though this type of error is related to a NAT problem, not sure where to look though.
I have setup ASA 5505 with 2 ISP, named outside (primary) and backup, the scenario is if outside down, then backup will take over, it works now. But it is not working when the primary connection cannot reach the gateway with the interface still up.
Is it possible when the primary connection cannot reach the gateway then backup automatically take over?
I have a production ASA 5505 that is working perfectly. I wanted to take a spare ASA 5505 and copy the running config to it so that I would have a backup unit that could be swapped out if the production unit went down.
Both units have security plus and running 8.2(1). The only difference is that the production ASA has 512MB of RAM while the backup ASA has 256MB. Also the backup has anyconnect and the production unit does not.
I copied the running-config to my tftp server and then copied the running config from my tftp server to the backup ASA as startup-config. After reload the device booted with an identical configuration to my production ASA, but after swapping out the units to test it, I have no access to the WAN or DMZ from my LAN. Swapping back to the production unit and all works as it should.
I printed out the running config from both devices and compared them line by line. They are identical except for the anyconnect line on the backup ASAs config file.
I have a Cisco ASA 5505 device with basic (default) license, currently all my reirections, VPN's, VLAN's(3 Vlan's) etc are configured on the same and are working fine.Now i need to upgrade my basic license to "Security Plus" for some additional features, if i upgrade it directley is there any complications in present rules, below is my doubhts
1. if i upgrade, did it change any of my present configurations ? 2. is there any name change or property changes for VLAN's or VPN's 3. did it affect the firewall functions 4. If anything goes wrong, can i restore it in to my old state using my previous dump.
I am planning to setup Clientless Web VPN on our ASA 5505 for secure access to a internal web resource from outside. When I checked the licensing details on the ASA using #sh ver I could notice thar Web VPN peers allowed is only 2 Does this mean that only two clientless simoultaneous connections are possible ?
Licensed features for this platform: Maximum Physical Interfaces : 8 VLANs : 3, DMZ Restricted
One of our clients has recently purchased upgrade licenses for their cisco asa as follows
L-ASA5505-10-50= and L-ASA5505-SEC-PL=
after retrieving the activation key from the cisco website we tried entering the activation key to the asa both via ASDM and telnet when entering the command on telnet the shell becomes unresponsive when entering the command on ASDM we receive a "success" message followed by a request to restart ASDM and save the configuration after a minute or so i get an error screen saying "write mem" the asdm restarts and nothing changes.
I'm working on setting up a backup link for our ASA 5505 and I've followed these directions: [URL]
The backup ISP gives us a dynamic address, however, when I enable the backup ISP's interface on the ASA, my vpn tunnels drop. As soon as I disable the backup interface, the tunnels come back up. I'm attempting to configure this across one of these tunnels, so obviously this is an issue, as is the fact that other people need the tunnels as well. I'm not sure what I did to make this happen, but I've been over the config many times and can't see anything different from the instructions in the link above.
I thought it might be trying to route traffic across the backup interface, but my primary interface is tracked and has SLA running on it, so I would assume it wouldn't roll over onto the backup interface.
I am working on ASA 5505 with Base License that uses 3 VLAN's.
-My VLAN 1 is for used for my home network. -VLAN 2 is connected to the public Internet and my IP gets assigned by ISP dynamically. -VLAN 3 is DMZ where I will have few VM's that would need access to and from the Internet.
I am looking to work with following:
1) 172.16.0.2 that sits on DMZ will need to access public Internet over port 80 2) Permit access from the Internet over port 3389 to 172.16.0.2 3) Permit any host on private VLAN (192.168.0.0 network) to access 172.16.0.2 over the port 3389 4) Permit second VM on the DMZ VLAN let say 172.16.0.3 to access public Internet on all ports. Access in to this host is not permitted. 5) For some reason DHCP hosts are NOT getting DNS (188.8.131.52) entry when IP hets assigned or renew. I have a statements below but it is not working.
Also, if ACL rules for VoIP are written correctly. The goal is to permit these ports (SIP related) to access VoIP router. [code]
I'm tring to setup a DMZ for a guest wireless off of a 5505. So this device has a base license. It has vlan1 and vlan 2 for inside and outside.Another vlan is configured to be a failover for the currently active wan connection. It is using the "no forward interface" command.Can I add another vlan as a DMZ if I use the "no forward interface" command? [code]
I have ASA 5505 with base licence. I configured NATing and VPN(site to site). All are working fine.My ASA is base license so i created 2 VLANS, one is inside and outside.Inside i am using 10.91.40.0/24 serie IP addresses.Below are the new requirements that i need to configre:
1. First 30 IP addresses only needs internet directly.( Servers and Management)
2. If remaining IPs likes to use web then traffic needs to forward one proxy server( where he gives user authentiation)
I recently purchased a used Cisco ASA 5505 and I accidentally (and very stupidly) erased the flash without backing up my license.I have generated a demo licence from the Cisco licencing site, so I have basic functionality. However, the email that I received informed me that there is a higher licence already stored for my device.My question is, is there a way to get that licence back if I can provide the serial number / any other identification to prove I now own the ASA?
My ASA 5505 base license allows for three VLANs, the third one can only initiate traffic to one other VLAN (as specified by no forward interface vlan <number> on the third VLAN). This doesn't mean it can't "access" the other VLAN, it just can't initiate traffic to it. A lot of people get that wrong.Let's say you've got three VLANs, one is OUTSIDE, two is DMZ, and three is INSIDE. On the second VLAN would I enter the no forward interface as vlan 3, then set the name via the nameif command and everything will work just fine. The DMZ will not be able to initiate traffic to the INSIDE, but will to the outside, and assuming you have your ACLs and NAT set up properly, it will be able to respond to traffic from the INSIDE.
Would that be best practice or would I enter the "no forward" interface as in VLAN 1, thus is being able to respond to traffic from the outside as opposed to the inside.
I had a DMZ set up but since there was an intrusion into my network, I am building it again.
I have a couple of 5505's with base licenses. One of the two has a limited output when running the sho version command, as it has a restricted license. What license I would need to buy in order to bring it up to "normal" base license ?
Well, I tried using the cisco configuration for ASA 5505 for blocking P2P: url...but this configuration only is usefull with programs like Kazaa, so I try this configuration to block ARES but the problem is that ARES try to make downloads from different ports, ¿How do I block ARES if there are sereveral ports ?
We recently upgraded a ASA 5505 with the security plus license to allow us to add a second subnet, but are having a few problems configuring the second subnet. The original subnet we have configured 10.1.1.0 is able to access the internet without any problems. However the new subnet 10.1.5.0 is unable to access the internet and when we ran a trace packet the nat config nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 is showing as the rule that drops the packet.
Additionally we have not been able to get the 2 subnets to talk to each other even though same-security-traffic permit inter-interface is configured. How to configure the subnet 10.1.5.0 to access the internet or to get the subnets to communicate. Below is a streamlined version of our current config.
I'm trying to activate the DMZ interface on a restricted license ASA 5505 but I get an error when I try to ADD the interface. The message says "With the current license device will only supports 2 fully functional interfaces. Third interface can be added,but the traffic from this interface to another interface need to be blocked. Please make appropriate selection in advanced tab." I gather that I have to define the limitation myself? The problem is that I can't access the advanced tab because of the error. Can I do something via CLI to get through? I'm using ASA 8.2 and ASDM 6.2.
At the end of the day I simply need to upgrade the license on my ASA 5505 v7.2.4 (upgrade will come later as part of a larger project) to allow for >10 Inside Hosts. From what I've read there seems to be a 50 license upgrade out there. Can this be purchased directly? From whom? Will it only affect the Inside Hosts number and not affect any other licenses, configurations, etc. Just being overly cautious since this is way outside of my normal realm. Below is the current activation-key information....
Result of the command: "show activation-key"
Serial Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Running Activation Key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
we are planning on connecting a new aquired company to ours soon?We will connect the remote site to the HQ via a D3. I've been told we will need to have a firewall between them and us for a time. I was thinking of terminating the D3 connection at the remote site of 80 users. Can I use the asr as a firewall as well, to protect the HQ from the Remote site - or should I use a seperate appliance?I was thinking of a asa5505 but, am concerned with bandwidth limitations of the box?
I had a previous issue in which I couldn't make a connection to an ASA 5505 behind an edge firewall found here: url...My continuing issue is that I can indeed connect to the ASA 5505 remotely but I cannot access anything internally. I believe it is a NAT issue but as of yet, nothing has worked.
I have a remote ASA5505 running 8.4(3) with a working site 2 site VPN tunnel to my main office. (The main office is running an ASA 5510 with OS 8.4.3 as well). The encryption domain is all private IP on main site vs. 172.16.10.0/23 on remote site.
Relevant config of the remote ASA:
interface Vlan1 nameif inside security-level 100
I can manage the ASA on the outside interface (outside of the site 2 site VPN) using the TACACS credentials I can also ping my management station from the ASA using the inside interface, but as stated, the other way around does not work. I have not yet tested if management from the local 172.16.10.0/23 subnet works, but I will try this next.
What's the difference between VPN Plus license and Security Plus license. I have new 5520 shipped with VPN Plus license.Also does it require a seperate license for Anyconnect for Mobile and AnyConnect Essentials.
I am using my ASA 5505 to remote VPN. I use both windows and Macs. I use the Cisco VPN client software on the windows machine, on the Mac I have used both the Cisco VPN software and the built in OS X VPN client.
I am able to VPN with all machines, but randomly the VPN will disconnect all users. I know there is a setting that may fix this which I think I tested in the past and it did not work, but I have now forgotten it.
