Configure CISCO ASA 5510 to use multiple Internet connections

Could someone please let me know whether the CISCO ASA 5510 appliance can be configured to route Internet bound traffic through multiple Internet routers based on source IP address.

We have a requirement where a production server requires it's own dedicated Internet connection and wanted to avoid having to purchase an additional firewall.

If it helps, we are currently only using three of the four Ethernet interfaces.

A quick response would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

you can look at different security contexts to split up the ASA.

Some features will be disabled though!

Hello Henkva,

Would we need to purchase any additional licenses to configure multiple security contexts?

The comparison table at the following link suggests that the Multiple Mode does not support VPN access.

I have also found the answer to the additional license question on the same page. My understanding is that by Default we can create two security contexts without the need of purchasing any additional licenses.

We currently use our ASA as a VPN server therefore am I correct in understanding that it will be either VPN access or Multiple Mode.

Thank you.

Hello,

For the sake of ease, we have decided to purchase a dedicated firewall.

Thank you for your assistance though.
