Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5505 - Retrieve Original License?
Feb 14, 2012
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?
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 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 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 (220.127.116.11) 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)
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 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 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
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.
Basically after upgrade from ASA 8.4 to 9.0 (2) I have problems when certain types of NAT.Example:SA 8.4: nat (LAN, outside) 85 10.252.253.123 source static 192.168.3.2 192.168.3.2 192.168.3.104 static destination service http http In this form the host 192.168.3.2 uses the mapped ip (192.168.3.104) to access by http while other ports can be accessed using the original IP (10.252.253.123).
ASA 9.0: nat (LAN, outside) 85 10.252.253.123 source static 192.168.3.2 192.168.3.2 192.168.3.104 static destination service http http In this form the host 192.168.3.2 uses the mapped ip (192.168.3.104) to access by http but unlike before now I cannot access to the original IP (10.252.253.123) using another port or ping from host 192.168.3.2.
My client is having a 5505 which supports 2 SSL peers as per now and we want an upgrade . I had a look into GPL and I was confused with two of the following part numbers . Which one should I go for as both of these look same for me and there is a huge difference in price .
We purchased an ASA 5505 (ASA5505-BUN-K9) and more recently purchased the license to upgrade it from 10 to 50 users (L-ASA5505-10-50). I would like to provide remote access to users via AnyConnect - specifically, AnyConnnect on Windows plus the iPhone/iPad and Android versions. My understanding is that I should purchase the Anyconnect Essentials (L-ASA-AC-E-5505) and Anyconnect Mobile (L-ASA-AC-M-5505) licenses. Is this correct? If I do this, how many simultaneous remote access VPN connections (via Anyconnect clients) will the ASA then support?
Further, we did not initially purchase Smartnet with this device, but I would like to do so to gain access to software updates. Is there a site or document where I can locate the SKU #'s for Smartnet contracts that would be appropriate with our device?
The output of "show version" is below:
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.3(1) Device Manager Version 6.3(1) Compiled on Thu 04-Mar-10 16:56 by builders System image file is "disk0:/asa831-k8.bin" Config file at boot was "startup-config"
I have ASA 5505 (8.4)I set up SSL AnyConnect VPN. I am able to connect from PC and MAC desktop computers using AnyConnect client but when I try use mobile device I am receiving error.Do I need buy the L-ASA-AC-M-5505=license?I see in description Platform: WindowsMy question is would it work with Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad)?
I assume 10-user means this device comes with a 10 user VPN license? Is there anything else I should be looking for when purchasing an ASA? Mainly looking to use my NetGear WNDR3700 as just a WiFi AP and not my edge device.
I am quite new to firewall, in my company one asa 5510 firewall is there.I configured inside, outside, dns, dhcp and nating.I need to config bandwidth limit (1Mbps) for inside port and I restruct like facebook, youtube and pornsites..And I heard that some subscription is required, really is it required?

[code]
- In this status, how to install LMS4.2 with license for 100 devices? If I install R-PI12-BASE-K9 first, can i enter a licese for 100 devices for CWLMS-4.0-100-K9 into PI1.2?
