Hi there,

We have a customer with a cable internet connection. In order for the internet connection to function we need to use a firewall that is able to clone mac addresses and configure a hostname on its wan interface.

Most of the cheap dsl or cable routers out there support this function.

We are planning to place a Cisco ASA firewall. My question is, is it possible to define a mac address on the cisco ASA's wan interface, and are we able to configure a hostname on the wan interface to support the ISP's configuration setup?

Thanks a lot in advance,
