Cisco ASA 5505 (ASA5505-BUN-K9)
Posted on 2006-11-02
I have a couple questions on the ASA5505-BUN-K9 Cisco just released...
First off, I saw that this is limited to 10 users. There will be only 5 machines or so, but one of them is a server. How are these 10 users computed? (where exactly is the limitation?)
Second, I will need to forward ports on to the web server. I have a PIX 506 and can do this with that by setting up access-lists and statics to permit the traffic in. Will I be able to do something similar with the ASA5505-BUN-K9?
Finally, the other computers on the network need to get to the web server when they try to go to the URL. For example, if my public IP address is 220.127.116.11 and the private IP address of the web server is 192.168.1.5, the computers need to either a) get routed by the ASA to the private IP (hairpinning, which is not supported by the PIX 506) or b) use DNS trickery to make the machine go directly to the private IP (the way it's done in the PIX 506). Will one of these options or both be available in the ASA?
