SSL VPN and ASA - need some help

Mystical_Ice asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm fairly familiar with configuring ipsec VPN tunnels and client VPNs on the asa 5505, but I have a client that wants me to set up a SSL VPN for users to access his terminal server.
I know I'm wrong, but I always thought SSL VPNs were only for web applications, since the VPN is established through the browser? Am I right? What benefit would there be to this over a regular VPN? Also, how does licensing work? How would I set it up?

Any help greatly appreciated!
