Mar 28th, 2007

Hi expert,

1. What is different between Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) and

Security Device Manager (SDM) ?

2. Can it use in Cisco ASA or PIX ?

3. Is it free of charge ?

4. Is it just a GUI interface for coniguration rather than using command line ?

I have this problem too.
