How many VPN tunnels can a Cisco 5505 handle?

Morning!

Our office will be moving soon, and most of our home users connect to the network via a Cisco 5505 IPsec VPN tunnel.

In the interim we will be collocating our servers to a data center as well.  So the public ip for the VPN will be changing.  

In order to keep everyone up and running, I was hoping I could configure the ASA's while we are at our current site with the new IPsec VPN tunnel info so that when we move, they won't see any interruptions.

Is that possible? To have 2 IPSec tunnels configured on an ASA but only one actually connecting?

Thank you

It should be able to handle 10 or 25 tunnels, depending if you have a base or plus license. So you should be ok :)

You wont need to alter the ASA config - other than changing its IP address!

It's the clients that will simply need to point their VPN client to the new IP address/public name of the ASA :)

So yes, you can have more than one and you can disable it as well.

out of the box I think its 25 IPSEC tunnels on a 5505 ernie may know better though :)

PeteLong, thank you, but the users don't use a VPN client since the tunnel is on the ASA.

Erniebeek, thank you for letting me know it can handle 10 or 25 tunnels.
