Re: firewall setup

Hi Carl,

You will want to connect via the console and use the CLI, as if you use the GUI when you change the spefics ie inside ip address etc, you will most likely lose your connection, assuming your internal lan uses a different number scheme than then asa default. (192.168.1.0/24)

Check out the below for info on configuring device;

You will be interested in the getting started section, initially.

Re: firewall setup

1.If you are familiar with Cisco CLI, it is easy to configure using CLI.

2.ASDM gui is also good for creation of IPsec tunnel & group policy application.

Important things to configure first

1.enable password

2.Hostname

3.Management IP

4.Clock Settings/NTP

to make ASA functional

1.nat / static command

2.global command

3.access-list

Re: firewall setup

Here is the link with some training on using the ASDM http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le31/le29/configuring_asa_pix_security_appliances.html

If you are new to GUI, you can go through this.

Thanks,

Radhika
