Cisco PIX 506e config/VPN question

Posted on 2007-07-23
Last Modified: 2010-04-09
I have a Cisco PIX 506e that was initially setup for VPN access by a consultant. He setup one VPN group on the PIX and created a file that could be imported into the Cisco VPN client to make it easy for the end user.

I'm looking to do a couple things.

1. I'd like to figure out how I can go about changing the current password setup for this VPN group so that if some users leave they won't have access to our network anymore.

2. I'd like to find out if I can disable this group and how I'd go about setting up individual users/groups in the PIX so that I can take into account users who leave the firm.

I have experience doing basic administration on the PIX but this process is out of the realm of what I'm used to.

    To add a VPN user to a PIX / ASA Local database

      PIX v6x

    conf t{enter}
    vpdn jbloggs password abc123xyz{enter}

    To Change the password

    Simply remove the line be prefixing it with a no then reenter it with the new password,
    in version 7 configs you will see the password is encrypted simply copy and paste that line e.g.

      PIX v6x

    conf t{enter}
    no vpdn jbloggs password oldpassword{enter}
    vpdn jbloggs password abc123xyz{enter}

    To Delete a VPN user

      PIX v6x

    conf t{enter}
    no vpdn username jbloggs {enter}
