Apple iPhone 2.x and 3.x VPN Connectivity to
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA)


Beginning with the iPhone 2.0 software (available July 2008), Apple offers an advanced VPN connectivity option for communicating with Cisco security appliances, including the ASA 5500 Series and the PIX Firewall. While Apple still supports access using L2TP/IPSec, end users attain superior connectivity by selecting Apple's new IPSec option on their iPhone.

New VPN features include, but are not limited to, certificate support and numerous centrally-pushed policies, such as backup server support, banners, and VPN load balancing.

Where do I find information on how to configure this client?

For Apple iPhone configuration information, please visit the Apple support area at:

http://www.apple.com/iphone/enterprise/integration.html

Configure your Cisco security appliance exactly as you would to support connections from the Cisco VPN Client (IPSec).

How do I receive support?

Apple directly supports the Cisco VPN Client on the iPhone, including the new 3.x functionality.

To receive support, please contact Apple at Consumer Technical Support:

800-APL-CARE (800-275-2273), 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central Standard Time

Which Cisco platforms work with the Cisco VPN Client on the iPhone?

Cisco ASA 5500 Security Appliances and PIX Firewalls. We highly recommend the latest 8.0.x software release (or greater), but you can also use 7.2.x software.

Cisco routers running IOS Release 12.4(15)T and later.

The VPN 3000 Series Concentrators do not support the iPhone VPN capabilities.
