    Hi all,

    Just a quick question, can anyone recommend a good ASA configuration / administrators handbook? Preferably something you have used and would advise others to use?

    I'm not looking at the certification (CCNP Firewall) just a good reference for day to day administration. I do have quite an experienced background in firewall administration but mainly across Juniper ScreenOS and Checkpoint deployments, so the fundamental concepts I already have, just need something to reference now and again on the Cisco front.

    Many thanks for your troubles!

    I like the following Cisco press manuals for this:

    "Cisco ASA All-in-one Firewall, IPS, Anti-X and VPN Adaptive Security Applicance", this deals with 8.2 and earlier, nice book, simple examples

    For the 8.3 and Later go for Cisco press "CCNP Security FIREWALL 642-618"

    If you have a couple of ASA to play with these are the books to use.

    Thanks,

    Yes I have a few at work that are coming in useful for client failover VPN backups. Would be great to master this firewall, it seems to be used in nearly all organisations somewhere!

    Cheers lab rat.
