Cisco WAN :: Require Dual WAN But Not Necessarily Firewall ASA 5505
Feb 9, 2012
I have a small office with about 20 people. I currently have a T1 line which feeds a Cisco ASA 5505. I would like to replace the T1 line with two (2) ADSL lines. I need a dual WAN switch/load balancer. I researched a bit and found that Cisco RV042 will probably work for me even though I don't need another VPN and would have to disable it.
My question: Is there anothe device from Cisco or others which will give me the dual WAN and load balancing but not the VPN piece. My assumption is that it would be a less expensive device if such an animal exists.
My client is transitioning to a new ISP and want to migrate there web servers in stages. therefore they would like to keep some servers running on the old ISP and some servers use the new ISP.
I have set this up in a lab and keep running into routning issues (I am using 5510 for the lab as I do not have a 5505 available). I know that ASA's don't support PBR. Is there any way or trick to get this to work on the ASA?
I have a feeling this is not possible and we would need to get another ASA or a Router to get this to work.
I need to configure my asa as follows: Two active ISP´s, one(ISP1) for outbound traffic (normal internet traffic) and the other one for inbound traffic(ISP2), http to a web server in the inside network. I have two default routes, one pointing to ISP 1 with metric 1 and the other to ISP2 with metric 2. I perform dynamic nat to ISP1 interface with hosts in the inside network and static nat to ISP2 interface with web server.
I would like to configure a Cisco ASA 5505 with Dual ISP (ISP 1 and ISP2) and two networks (network 1 and network 2). My customer need that clients in the network 1 connect to Internet with ISP1 and clients in the network 2 connect with ISP2. If a failure occurs in ISP1 (just an example) the network 1 clients connect with ISP2.
Currentry all traffic is passing thru Outside2 and it's correct, also s2s and ra VPN is also running on Outside2 ?My current case is to use Outside1 for webvpn services only. I can't use Outside2 becouse on 443 port other services are running, also I cant change webvpn port to other.
How can I match packets incoming to interface Internet1 from Interner side nad route them back thru Internet1 interface.
IPSLA is not a good solution becouse I need to have both WAN links used Now in routing table I have only onre record
S* 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 [20/0] via x.x.x.x, INTERNET2
for link with lower metric, but after some problems with provider for link Internet2 routing has changed for Internet1 and didn't change it back after resolving problem? how to create it for all traffic incoming for Internet1 interface from outside?
I have a 5505 configured with a active/standby dual wan setup using the sla tracked connection settings. Is there a way to configure the ASA to stay on the backup connection after activating? We had a situation where the main T1 was bouncing, so the backup connection was being activated and deactivated very often. The problem is that there is an app being used that does not allow users to reconnect to dropped connections immediately, so every time the asa switches wan connections it causes a significant disruption.I should note that I already set monitor options frequency to 240 seconds. I could set it higher, but then we have a longer delay when the main connection dies.
I have an ASA 5505 current f/w & the security plus license (to get the 3 nameif interfaces). Can I split traffic between two ISPs, (VPN traffic to one destination on a T-1 on one VLAN, and all other traffic using DSL to another VLAN) and using a different nat policy on both? I know load balacing isn't supported, only failover. I was just wondering if there was a way to make this work.
One of my remote sites acquires Internet connectivity via a cable modem service. This goes down intermittently, of course. I would like to purchase DSL service from the local telco and configure the edge ASA (currently a 5505) to use the cable modem path normally ... and fall back to the DSL path if necessary.
These seems hard to do. The edge box would need to evaluate the viability of a WAN path using some set of tests ... perhaps pings to a handful of major Internet sites. If all those pings start failing, it would stall for a minute, to give the WAN service provider time to recover ... then cut over to the second path. Cutting to the second path might mean pushing new DNS server addresses to clients (or perhaps the edge box would hand out both sets of DNS servers all the time and rely on the clients to try them all.) Once the cable modem provider restored service, the edge box would stall for a while (ten minutes? an hour?) and then cut back.
I'm willing to replace the edge box with something fancier (a bigger ASA or something sold as a router or whatever), although I'd like to stay under 10K (list) for such a replacement.
I need to move the client machines off of the 3750 (and their DHCP dependency on it) to the SGE2010 and absolutely route their internet traffic out through the outside interface on the 5505. They must also be able to communicate back into the internal environment in order to communicate with the production servers.
The clients currently use .254 addressing through a dumb dell switch to the 3750 but I am trying to migrate them over slowly to the .253. I know that the 2010 will not do DHCP, so I am putting a DHCP server on that switch right now. The 5505 won't let me add an additional nameif statement onto one of the other eth0/x interfaces and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it's capabilities to act as a DHCP server (it's not an option in the ASDM) or it's ability to serve as the internet gateway for the 2010 clients. (Side notes: The 5505 has a base license and is currently also connecting 1 site to site VPN. As is the 5520, so all of it's interfaces are used as well).
I statically assigned a moved client with a .253 address and plugged it into the 2010. I have tried giving the 2010 both a .4 address and a .253 address but neither will allow me to ping any of the addresses on the 5505. The 2010 shows automatic routes to the two subnets and I set it's default route to 253.1. The link between the 2010 and the 3750 works - clients receive a .254 address from the 3750 and can get out to the internet via the 5505 and reach the production servers as well.
Why won't the 2010 see the 5505 as a gateway and allow clients to get to the internet and also traverse the 3750 when they need access to the production network?
The reason why I dont' just connect the two swtiches and call it a day is because I also need the production servers to ALWAYS go out/receive web requests via the 5520 outbound/outside interface. I'm having such a hard time wrapping my head around why i can't get my clients moved over to the new switch, I haven't even grasped how I'm going to do that yet.
Cisco ASA 5505 Security Plus 1 link with PPOE dialup for internet access
desirable situation: Primary link with a PPOE dialup Secondary Link with DHCP address Asignment
Problem: i want to configure Dual ISP Failover modus, but the problem exist when i configure the ip sla syntax it looks good in the running config. but after a reload the secondary line becomes primary
It looks like the ppoe client authentication is busy when the ip sla tracking mechanism becomes active. can i tweak the settings that the ip sla tracking mechanism starts later?
What i the correct config for Dual ISP setup with primary PPOE and secondary DHCP
If you look at the data sheet for the 5512-X the High Availability section states "Not Supported; ActiveActive or ActiveStandby" while the ASA 5515-X states "ActiveActive or ActiveStandby". What does "Not Supported" mean for the ASA 5512-X? Does this mean HA does not work, or that I need to purchase an additional license to use the HA feature?
We have got site to site VPN configured between local site with PIX515 6.3(5) and remote site with ASA 5505 7.2(4) . Because of very unreliable internet connection in remote site , we have added new ISP link which we want to use as redundant link .i understand ASA 5505 can be configured with two ISP link with SLA monitor method for redundancy as per this document ,[URL]
my question is how do i set up this pix 515 to have redundant VPN tunnel with remote site (when primiary ISP link fails in remote site and secondary ISP links takes over ) . I was thinking of using PIX 515 with 2 peers in same crypto map used for that sepcific site to site vpn tunnel,not sure that is the right way or not though.But how would i configure ASA 5505 to use backup interface(where secondar isp router conects ) to particitae in Site to site Tunnel .
At the moment I'm running a T1 to a Cisco ASA 5505 device. I'm in the process of getting a backup ISP. My question is, is it possible to configure this firewall with two ISPs so that the same internal webserver can be accessed via backup ISP?
I am trying to create a backup tunnel from an ASA 5505 to a pix 501 in the case of the Main ISP failing. The Pix external side will stay the same, but not quite sure how I can create a new crypto map and have it use the Backup ISP interface without bringing down the main tunnel.
My first thought was to add the following crypto map to the configuration below: [code]
I have two Internet links:ISP1: only Site 2 Site VPNsISP2: only HTTP/HTTPS traffic and incoming remote access VPNs With the security plus license I could correctly configure them both as active at the same time on the same ASA device. Also, I've successfully accomplished the following traffic separation:
Site to Site VPNs goes out through ISP1HTTP/HTTPS traffic goes out through ISP2 The customer request is that, when ISP1 fails the S2S traffic is relayed through ISP2 -> This is working fine, I've already tested!But when ISP1's service is restored and that link is working fine, I want that the S2S VPN traffic gets relayed through it again automatically, which didn't happen. My question is: using SLA will the S2S traffic be relayed through ISP1 again automatically when it's services are restored? If not, which technology should I use to accomplish this?
PS: This is all configured on only 1 ASA 5505 whose license was upgraded.
I created three different Remote VPN connections with three different networks . i can make them one but for some reasons i don't mix all.and iam using Cisco asa 5505 with Shrew Soft VPN software , so my problem is,- i connected Shrew soft remote vpn , if i try to connected another remote vpn connection this will not accept the second connection, any remote vpn connection software that accepts more than one connection
I have two sites with identical asa 5505's and each has the dual wan/ISP links and are set for failover using sla monitor tracking. I would like to create a vpn between these two sites that stays active regardless of which ISP link is online. Do I simply make two crytpo map statements10 and a 20 inside each of the asa's to each of the other ASA's STATIC PUBLIC IP's? [code]
I want to link ASA 5505 to two ISP's for backup purpsose. I can see this configuration example here url...
Question - does the ASA 5505 do load balancing as well for both connections - is there an example somewhere? (I do not want to buy two ASA 5505's!) which seems the only way I could find configuration details for!
I am currently authenticating wireless clients using PEAP User Authentication through a Cisco Wireless LAN Controller and Cisco ACS 4.2, which points to a Microsoft Active Directory external database. This does not keep users from configuring thier personal devices with thier Active Directory login information and connecting to the corporate wireless network. I can setup a client to use a certificate, machine authentication and user authentication, but I havent been able to REQUIRE the certificate and or machine authentication to authenticate to my wireless network.
>I now have the Windows External Database Configuration, ACS External Database setup with Enable PEAP Machine Authentication and Enable machine access restrictions. With the client configuration set to use Computer Authentication, it passes the authentication through ACS (and AD), but the client can also be configured for User Authentication and also pass authenticaiton. Is there a way to only require Computer Authentication through a Cisco WLCCisco ACS?
I would like to setup three Aironet 2602I-A-K9 WAP in my office. Being new to Cisco WiFi, it appeared that I HAVE to have a WiFi Controller to make this work. Is that a requirement that requires me to also purchase a WIFI controller?
Remove PPPoe settings on Vista. I uninstalled the att software but the pppoe settings remain and my computer says my network is unidentified and will only allow local connection. My XP computer had no problem making the change but the Vista one keeps saying it is an unidentified network. I have tried turning everything off and then restarting the cable and then the computer but it does not work. I have a wireless adapter and can connect the Vista machine to the network with no problem but need a wired connection for games I play so I need to fix the wired problem. I am sure the settings the ATT software changed is the problem but I don't know how to get into the system to fix the problem. There is no router involved. The router is built into the cable modem.
I have a Cisco 2921 router running c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.150-1.M4.bin.Its licensed for ipbase, ipbasek9, Permanent and uc,uck9,Permanent (I'm using the router as a voice gateway),I'm looking to update the IOS to c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.150-1.M5.bin as I'm told it has a fix for some DSP problems.So the question is, do I need to obtain a new license key to apply this update or am I covered by the existing license on the router.
I am doing my college project(Client Server Chat Application in C#). I need to transfer all the data of my application through a VPN tunnel. I want to create a IPSEC VPN tunnel through which I can route the Data. I am low On budget I am not inclined towards buying any Hardware. So is it necessary to purchase a Router or a Network Interface Card To create A IpSec VPN.
I have a "Thomson TG585 v7" router I reset it and the default username is "user" and password is "admin". So after the restart I want to configure again the router so I click the "Set Up" option I click "Next" and then show me to enter again the username and password but they are not the same as the router username and password. What can I do?
We have a cisco services contract with IBM that supplies us access to the usb drivers, firmwares etc, and we have a Cisco 5508 6.x running ~30 Cisco 1252's, some 1231's and (potentially) some 1262's once the firmware update is done.
We have a base-count license(permanent) of 50AP's, no expiry
So I guess my questions are:
1) When flashing the new firmware - do the licenses require any sort of modification, or will they work as per normal
2) Are any serial numbers or codes required to be entered once the 7.0.98 firmware is installed?
3) I assume that the old firmware/config becomes 2nd in line to the primary boot option of the firmware during boot process?
