Setting up clientless vpn for ASA 5505
It works probable the same on a ASA 5510, 5520, etc. However no guarantees.
Before we get started you need the following:
Internal network in this example will be: 10.110.0.0 /16
Outside network IP address will be: 192.168.10.250 (in normal usage the asa would have a public ip. But i am currently in a test lab where i have the asa behind another gateway.)
1. Login to the ASDM software and start the wizard named: “Clientless SSL VPN Wizard”

2. Click Next

3. Fill in the connection profile name in this example I will use: 2is_sslvpn_prof
4. I do not have a valid certificate at the moment but you can add one here.
5. Leave everything default. Click Next

6. On this moment I don’t have a AAA server group and will use the local user database.
Click Authenticate using the local user database and add users. For the test I have added the user test. This is of course not recommended for production use!
7. Click Next to continue.

8. Create a new group policy. In this example I use: 2is_ssl_vpn_grppol.
Click next to continue

9. I have decided to edit the bookmarks later. Click next. However you don’t have to wait. Add them accordingly.

11. Click Finish to finish the setup.
Picture 8 Summary
The ASA will execute the following commands. (This is also a manner to set it up. In my opinion I always choose cli above gui. However this is the first time I am configuring clientless vpn so that’s the reason I first do gui.)
username test password ********* encrypted privilege 0
username test attributes
group-policy 2is_ssl_vpn_grppol internal
group-policy 2is_ssl_vpn_grppol attributes
tunnel-group 2is_sslvpn_prof type remote-access
tunnel-group 2is_sslvpn_prof general-attributes
The clientless vpn is now ready. I have tested it remotely.
12. I have DDNS enabled but if you have the public ip address open a browser and go to: https://Public_IP_ADDRESS/
13. Click Continue to this website (not recommended). This error can be fixed by adding a valid certificate to the website. Trusted on a public root CA. (For example sslcertificaten.nl.)

14. Fill the credentials from the local user database and click on login
