I have a brand new ASA 5510 and started with the default configuration. (I'm pretty new to this)
The fundamental problem that I am facing is that I cannot get any interface other than management to come up after configuring with an IP, security level, name and the "no shut" command.
The interface is configured for auto speed/dup and physical links are good.
I applied a "permit any any" acl both in and out on the inside and outside, set security level of all interfaces to match and allowed traffic between them, and to the best of my knowledge established static nat between the inside interface IP and an IP on the same subnet as the outside interface.
At this point I'm not concerned with passing traffic, I'm just wondering what is the minimum configuration necessary to get an interface from down to up.
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
