I recently purchased 3 of the new Firepower 1010. I an using the device up using the on box management, Firepower Device Manager (FDM), to configure the firewalls. I currently don't have enough FMC licenses to connect the firewalls to FMC at this time. With a Cisco ASA I would simply be able to set security levels on each interface to create a stateful firewall. I would like to accomplish the same thing on the Firepower 1010. Does the Firepower 1010 have a feature that would allow me to configure a stateful firewall using FDM? Honestly FDM seems pretty bare bones and I'm not super impressed with it...
Any help is appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes you can use FDM to configure, below guide help you.
So if I create an inside and an outside security zone and apply them to the appropriate interfaces all I should need to do is create an Access Control rule to allow inside to outside and it the 1010 should perform state tracking?
I factory reset the device and it looks like that is all it did by default.
there's already a default NAT and access control rules configured in FTD for initial traffic to flow.
you'll also need to further tweak the device via FDM.
