route ISP gateway

Hello;

I'm new into firewall things. I have a asa5505 to configure. my ISP gave me a ip address to use (x.x.x.x) and their gateway ip address (Y.Y.Y.Y) and I set the outside Vlan to use static IP and simply used "route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Y.Y.Y.Y 1" and it worked. I think that this route is too simple and I want to make it stronger. what if I use "route outside X.X.X.X 255.255.255.0 Y.Y.Y.Y 1"?

please help.

I Really appreciate your help.

 

BR.

Re: route ISP gateway

You can use more specific route as you mentioned but if you want internet to work the default route of 0.0.0.0 pointing to Y.Y.Y.Y is necessary.
