Q: ASA 5505 (Home Office) - Dual ISP ?

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Martin Bilgrav, Oct 19, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I have read that the ASA5505 is to be released soon - any ideas when ?

    Also I have read that the V7.2, that the ASA5505 starts with, supports Dual
    ISP (could be that other 7.x version does aswell - i dunno)
    How is this done ?
    And how does it work ...

  2. Hmmm, it's on the order books of some places, and I found a couple
    that *appear* to be indicating they have stock, but I'm not about
    to place a real order just to confirm it.


    It's a floating static route with icmp reachability testing.

  4. Hi Walter, and thank you for your reply.

    Funny stuff about the globals and NAT statements - Why not just use
    "interface" in the global ?
    and why the NAT with an ACL ...

    I dug into it abit more, as to the 5505:

    backup interface and assigning VLAN to the individual switchports.
    Nicely done Cisco !
    I like it allready

    But if I want LB/LS instead, what can be done then ?
    (Pardon my lag of os7.x experience)

    Also found some info on intra-Interface command, allowing you to route
    in/out the same interface.
    That will give som funny looking ACL for inside traffic (!)
