New to ASA's.

Whats a good starting config?

I dont need any ports open. No server behind. I want the most secure config!

IE: Do I need to block RFC1918 address on my WAN interface?


Thanks!

No you don't need to block private addressing on WAN interface; they don't get routed publicly by default.

A quick google brought up this as a startup guide:

Consider what traffic needs to get through the firewall and create acl's based on that, and then apply them to the interfaces. Difficult to really give you specifics without understanding explicit needs.

There are only two specifi needs:

1. Allow internet access

2. Allow vpn out
