We are finished with our L2VPN beta testing, and are very happy to report that all 38 of our beta testers reported back not only no issues with connecting to us, but also an incredible experience overall with phones that appear directly connected to their rack switchports, and that behave and function exactly as they did when any of them have previously sat for the CCIE Voice lab exam. We are happy to announce that every one of our Voice racks now fully supports SIX Layer 2 VPN connections – one for each phone.

At INE, we are all about putting as much knowledge in your mind as it can hold, as many tools in your hands as possible, and doing it all for far less than anyone. We offer so many ways of connecting to our Voice racks and often I get asked which method is the best and which they should use. So I thought I would take this time to quickly outline all of the ways we offer to connect to our racks, and then break them down by most-to-least desirable methods for doing so after the break.

Outline of Connection Methods

  1. Layer 2 Hardware VPN – Use Your Own Hardware Cisco IP Phones

  2. Layer 3 Hardware VPN – Use Your Own Hardware Cisco IP Phones
  3. SSL AnyConnect VPN – Use Our Rack-Connected Phones with FREE Web-Based Remote Control
  4. IPSec (EzVPN) VPN – Use Our Rack-Connected Phones with FREE Web-Based Remote Control
  5. NO VPN AT ALL – Use Our Rack-Connected Phones with FREE Web-Based Remote Control

In this blog post we are going to review and compare the ways in which IOS and ASA Easy VPN servers perform ezVPN attribute authorization via RADIUS. The information on these procedure is scattered among the documentation and technology examples, so I thought it would be helpful to put the things together.

To begin with, let’s establish some sort of equivalence between the IOS and ASA terminology. Even though ASA inherited most of it’s VPN configuration concepts from the VPN3000 platform it is still possible to find similarities between the IOS and the ASA configurations. Recall that IOS ezVPN configuration defines local ezVPN group policy by means of the crypto isakmp client configuration group command. This could be viewed as a rough equivalent to the ASA’s group-policy type internal command, though the ASA’s command scope is much broader. IOS ISAKMP profiles could be viewed as an equivalent to the ASA’s tunnel-group command defining a connection profile.
