TOPIC: Best physical setup with ASA5505

Best physical setup with ASA5505 10 years 2 months ago #29368


I have a home network and a test network for Cisco and MCSE training. I have one cable modem and 2 IP's for 2 routers. One each for each network. My question is I now have an ASA5505 that I want to incorporate into my networks for training and security. What is the best physical configuration for this and do I still need 2 IP's to separate the networks or can the ASA5505 do this.
For instance, should I have the ASA5505 after the modem and setup subnets in the ASA. I also have 3 2507's, a 1720, a 1751, a 2501, a 2514, 2 catalyst 2900's, and 2 catalyst 1900's. My goal is to keep my home network separate and use all the cisco equipment to train on and set up labs. Also, I want my MCSE pc's to be incorporated with the Cisco equipment. I have 4 2003 servers, 2 2000 boxes, 3 XP Pro boxes, a Vista Business machine with 2 virtual machine OS's, and a 2008 server.

Any thoughts and help would be appreciated.

If you don't want to use multiple ISPs, you could separate your network using VLANs and have everything connect to the ASA as your gateway to the Internet.
