[CISCO ASA 5505] disable firewall


I want to configure a Cisco ASA 5505 for client access to use RDP connections within a SSL tunnel.
But I allready got a router/firewall up and running in the LAN (Draytek Vigor pro 5500), which is working fine! So, I want to keep this one! So, I don't want to use the firewall on the ASA. Is there a possibility to disable the firewall?

So I want to access the cisco ASA from the outside with a public IP address, which I translate in the NAT table of the Vigor PRO to the inside IP of the cisco ASA.

Is this possible??

There isn't really any need to disable the firewall component of the ASA, as in this configuration you only need one interface active on the ASA which will accept incoming connections and access resources on the LAN to proxy the RDP traffic.

However, bear in mind that the ASA is a very advanced security appliance and will be a much more flexible firewall than te Draytek. I would recommend putting your network behind the ASA instead of the Vigor.
