I need some information on the Cisco ASA 5500 series and UC520. It seems pretty confusing reading thru all the articles on Cisco's site and just doing Google searches. From what I gather, the base model doesn't come with IPS or anti-x features. If you want IPS, you can add the AIP-SSM module and if you want anti-x you'd have to get the Content security bundle (CSC-SSM). Let me know if I'm missing anything.
1. Can the ASA or the PIX act as a router? (i.e. if I was to connect to my ISP via ethernet.... NO DSL or cable, just straight ethernet).
2. Can the Cisco UC520 act as a router?
