Hello Cisco experts
We just recently bought a Cisco ASA 5510 appliance and I am supposed to set it up and install in our network (currently use Watchguard)
My conection to the internet is a 5MB Optical Circuit (Metro Ethernet) and the Ethernet cable is plugged straight into Watchguard outbound port. (no router)
Behind the firewall I have 3 internal networks (2 + 1 DMZ) . I am trying to figure out the best way to set the ASA up so I have started to read an article Cisco Document ID 63880 "Connecting Multiple Internal Networks with Internet: Configuration Example"
This document refers to PIX/ASA 7.x or higher and one of the prerequisites is to use a Cisco router behind the PIX (?!) I don't know if this apply to ASA device, it it does then I am in trouble (need a router)
My ASA 5510 software is 7.12 . I have tried to upgrade to 8.X (available on the CD which came with the unit) but it fails every time I try to upgrade the software
I have also noticed that Packet Tracker is not available on my ASDM interface. Should I upgrade to v 6.11 ( also available on CD) or is something else I should to to get this very usefull tool
Thank you all in advance for your help
