Hi, the FTD software (220.127.116.11) on ASA 5506-X does not seem to support point-to-point (/31) ipv4 subnets. When trying to set my static /31 public ip on the outside interface in FDM the error message "You cannot assign a broadcast address as the IP address of an interface" is raised. A fix would be most appriciated !
This message is clearly says you can not assign ""You cannot assign a broadcast address as the IP address of an interface"
can you please show us more information, what is the exactly IP address you trying to Assign ?

Hi, any attempt to assign an ip address with netmask 255.255.255.254 to an interface in FDM will either raise the error message above or "You cannot assign a network address "x.x.x.x/255.255.255.254" as the IP address of an interface" based on whether you are using the first or last address in the point-to-point subnet.
/31 subnets is not a problem on a IOS router or ASA:
ip address x.x.x.81 255.255.255.254
I'm using a new ASA5506-X reimaged with FTD and FDM local management (no FMC avail). The smallest subnet possible on the interfaces is /30. If the problem is FDM, could the interface ip be configured from CLI Expert mode ?
Abhijeet- just got confirmed from TAC that the /31 addresses is a restriction on ALL devices running FTD due to limitations in FMC. This feature is planned implemented in a future FTD/FMC vesion. Could you share the running FTD/FMC version on your FPR2110 ?
