Step 1 Start ASDM and select
Configuration > Remote Access VPN > AAA/Local Users > Local Users
Step 2 Select the user you want to configure and click
The Edit User Account screen opens.
Step 3 In the left pane, click
Step 4 Specify a group policy for the user. The user policy will inherit the attributes of this group policy. If there are other fields on this screen that are set to
the configuration from the Default Group Policy, the attributes specified in this group policy will take precedence over those in the Default Group Policy.
Step 5 Specify which tunneling protocols are available for the user, or whether the value is inherited from the group policy. Check the desired
check boxes to choose the VPN tunneling protocols that are available for use. Only the selected protocols are available for use. The choices are as follows:
Clientless SSL VPN (VPN via SSL/TLS) uses a web browser to establish a secure remote-access tunnel to a VPN Concentrator; requires neither a software nor hardware client. Clientless SSL VPN can provide easy access to a broad range of enterprise resources, including corporate websites, web-enabled applications, NT/AD file shares (web-enabled), e-mail, and other TCP-based applications from almost any computer that can reach HTTPS Internet sites.
The SSL VPN Client lets users connect after downloading the Cisco AnyConnect Client application. Users use a clientless SSL VPN connection to download this application the first time. Client updates then occur automatically as needed whenever the user connects.
IPsec IKEv1—IP Security Protocol. Regarded as the most secure protocol, IPsec provides the most complete architecture for VPN tunnels. Both Site-to-Site (peer-to-peer) connections and Cisco VPN client-to-LAN connections can use IPsec IKEv1.
IPsec IKEv2—IPsec IKEv2-Supported by the AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. AnyConnect connections using IPsec with IKEv2 can make use of the same feature set available to SSL VPN Connections.
L2TP over IPsec allows remote users with VPN clients provided with several common PC and mobile PC operating systems to establish secure connections over the public IP network to the ASA and private corporate networks.
Note If no protocol is selected, an error message appears.
Step 6 Specify which filter (IPv4 or IPv6) to use, or whether to inherit the value from the group policy. Filters consist of rules that determine whether to allow or reject tunneled data packets coming through the ASA, based on criteria such as source address, destination address, and protocol. To configure filters and rules, choose
Configuration > Remote Access VPN > Network (Client) Access > Group Policies > Add/Edit > General > More Options > Filter.
to display the ACL Manager pane, on which you can add, edit, and delete ACLs and ACEs.
Step 7 Specify whether to inherit the Connection Profile (tunnel group) lock or to use the selected tunnel group lock, if any. Selecting a specific lock restricts users to remote access through this group only. Tunnel Group Lock restricts users by checking if the group configured in the VPN client is the same as the users assigned group. If it is not, the ASA prevents the user from connecting. If the Inherit check box is not checked, the default value is None.
Step 8 Specify whether to inherit the Store Password on Client System setting from the group. Uncheck the
check box to activate the Yes and No radio buttons. Click
to store the logon password on the client system (potentially a less-secure option). Click
(the default) to require the user to enter the password with each connection. For maximum security, we recommend that you not allow password storage.
Step 9 Specify an Access Hours policy to apply to this user, create a new access hours policy for the user, or leave the Inherit box checked. The default value is Inherit, or, if the Inherit check box is not checked, the default value is Unrestricted.
to open the Add Time Range dialog box, in which you can specify a new set of access hours.
Step 10 Specify the number of simultaneous logons by the user. The Simultaneous logons parameter specifies the maximum number of simultaneous logons allowed for this user. The default value is 3. The minimum value is 0, which disables logon and prevents user access.
Note While there is no maximum limit, allowing several simultaneous connections could compromise security and affect performance.
Step 11 Specify the
maximum connection time
for the user connection time in minutes. At the end of this time, the system terminates the connection. The minimum is 1 minute, and the maximum is 2147483647 minutes (over 4000 years). To allow unlimited connection time, check the
check box (the default).
Step 12 Specify the Idle Timeout for the user in minutes. If there is no communication activity on the connection by this user in this period, the system terminates the connection. The minimum time is 1 minute, and the maximum time is 10080 minutes. This value does not apply to users of clientless SSL VPN connections.
Step 13 Configure the Session Alert Interval. If you uncheck the Inherit check box, the Default checkbox is checked automatically. This sets the session alert interval to 30 minutes. If you want to specify a new value, uncheck the Default check box and specify a session alert interval from 1 to 30 minutes in the minutes box.
Step 14 Configure the Idle Alert Interval. If you uncheck the Inherit check box, the Default checkbox is checked automatically. This sets the idle alert interval to 30 minutes. If you want to specify a new value, uncheck the Default check box and specify a session alert interval from 1 to 30 minutes in the minutes box.
Step 15 To set a dedicated IPv4 address for this user, enter an IPv4 address and subnet mask in the Dedicated IPv4 Address (Optional) area.
Step 16 To set a dedicated IPv6 address for this user, enter an IPv6 address with an IPv6 prefix in the Dedicated IPv6 Address (Optional) field. The IPv6 prefix indicates the subnet on which the IPv6 address resides.
Step 17 To configure clientless SSL settings, in the left pane, click
Clientless SSL VPN
. To override each setting, uncheck the
check box, and enter a new value.
Step 18 Click
The changes are saved to the running configuration.
