Connecting 2 ASA 5525-X devices

I am trying to connect 2 ASA 5525-X devices, one pure firewall and one pure IPS with Firepower services.  I was wondering if I needed to create a new P2P IP addresses to connect the two together?  or if the data is purely pass through.  I know that the device is capable of both, but the configuration that we have to meet requires the two.

 

Please let me know.

 

Thank you Jennifer

For both devices you have the option of running in routed mode (interfaces requires IP addresses) or transparent mode (no IP address required).

 

Which you use typically depends on the upstream and downstream devices and how they currently operate. Routed mode is far more prevalent for firewalls.
