Hi experts,

I plan on running a ASA on GNS on a windows XP machine but most of tutorial and setup i find in the internet are for setting up an ASA on linux systems. I already got the latest GNS on my XP and i got ASA image. I'm not to familiar on scripts, compiling and such that's why I'm really having a hard time understanding what they say.

Badly need your help guys on this, hope to hear from you guys.

Thanks in advance :-)

you cannot run asa code with GNS the best I could do is emulate a PIX 535 with PIX 7.2 software.

look at http://blog.ine.com/2008/09/11/gns3pix/ for a procedure...

hope this helps.

actually they could emulate ASA on GNS but most tutorials i've encountered are setting it up on either OSx or linux base OS like Ubuntu.

i've seen a lot of links on setting it up on linux, and i know some are able to set it up on windows machine but i can't find the right material i can understand to do the same.

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

for the ips there is a vmware version of the 5.x ids floating around for lab purposes.

that is fantastic!

you used to need to find an activation key to get failover to work, but it looks you are already there.

if you could load 8.3 then you could tart playing with the SSL VPN features but licensing would probably get more challenging.
