Have you looked at Configuring Interfaces for the Cisco ASA 5505 Adaptive Security Appliance.  It is on PDF/MOBI/EPUB and online

I will look but apparantely the asa5505 is configured via vlans not interfaces and I think asa5510 is for interfaces.

Im not particularly a fan of the Cisco documentation, I find it tries to be 'all things to all users' and just comes off as too overcomplicated and difficult to follow.

The best way to learn is to 'do'. I realise that testing on your live firewall may be a scary prospect, but you can get a spare ASA for less than 200 quid to play with - Or if that's not an option, build a virtual ASA in GNS3 to practice on.

Anyway, Ive worked on this platform for a few years now, and every time I've learned something new I've put the results here

If ive missed something you need to know, let me know, and I'll add it to the list :)
