ASA Management interface


on an ASA5510 with base license, can I configure the management port for IP and my laptop for and then connect to the ASA5510 from the laptop on SSH or ASDM?

Or will that not work because the interface is management-only?

Sure you can. The management port can actually be configured to pass traffic like a normal port. The only difference is that it is set by default as the management interface in default config.

The only thing you need to make sure you have in addition to this is that access is enabled for your admin protocols from that address space/host on the 192.168.0 network.

In addition to Pugglewuggle:
To change that, in configuration mode:
conf t
int xxx (name of the interface)
no management-only

That should make it a normal interface.
true that
