Cisco FIREWALL 2.0: Configuring Routing Features and the Transparent Firewall

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.

Overview

Some small deployments and most medium- to large-size deployments require the Cisco ASA Adaptive Security Appliance to forward traffic to hosts that are not on directly connected networks. For the Cisco ASA Security Appliance to forward traffic correctly, it must have current routing information from which it can make a path selection. This course examines how routes are added to the routing table of the Cisco ASA Security Appliance and it examines the need for multicast support in secure environments.
When you need to integrate the Cisco ASA Adaptive Security Appliance into an existing network and do not want or are unable to readdress the network, you might consider using the Cisco ASA Security Appliance transparent mode. This course also describes the differences between transparent and routed firewall mode, and it describes how to configure a transparent firewall, how to enable access control on a transparent firewall, and how to troubleshoot transparent firewall operation.

Target Audience
