Cisco PIX ASA500 Gotchas
Posted on 2014-01-21
I have been tasked with the job of changing the IP address of the Outside interface of an PIX ASA500 series Firewall which was installed and configured by somebody else, who is not available to help. Neither will I have access to the unit to interrogate its current configuration until I am expected to change it and get it working again. Add to that the fact I have very little experience of these units and you will appreciate why I am a bit nervous.
Having read up a little I suspect the solution could be as simple as changing the IP address assigned to the interface and changing the default route accordingly - however, this being Cisco, are there any "gotchas" to look out for? Anything I need to be aware of in this potential minefield?
Thanks in anticipation.
