  • 1 The total number of VPN sessions depends on your licenses. If you enable AnyConnect Essentials, then the total is the model maximum of 25. If you enable AnyConnect Premium, then the total is the AnyConnect Premium value plus the Other VPN value, not to exceed 25 sessions.
  • 2 In routed mode, hosts on the inside (Business and Home VLANs) count toward the limit when they communicate with the outside (Internet VLAN), including when the inside initiates a connection to the outside as well as when the outside initiates a connection to the inside. Note that even when the outside initiates a connection to the inside, outside hosts are not counted toward the limit; only the inside hosts count. Hosts that initiate traffic between Business and Home are also not counted toward the limit. The interface associated with the default route is considered to be the outside Internet interface. If there is no default route, hosts on all interfaces are counted toward the limit. In transparent mode, the interface with the lowest number of hosts is counted toward the host limit. Use the show local-host command to view host limits.
  • 3 For a 10-user license, the max. DHCP clients is 32. For 50 users, the max. is 128. For unlimited users, the max. is 250, which is the max. for other models.
