ASA5510-BUN-K9 - need 10 ports or more

Unanswered Question
Mar 12th, 2008

My customer has an ASA5510-BUN-K9 with a SSM-4GE card.

He is presently using 8 + 1 ports and he need 1 more port for additional purpose.

May he use the eight ports of the SSM-4GE ports ?

Is there a possibility to have more than 9 ports on an ASA without using VLANs with 802.1Q ?

Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

Hello Patrice,

As long I know, that's not posible, 'cause they're physically 8 ports in a SSM-4GE, but only 4 ports can be used simultaneously for fiber Optics with the SFP or copper with the UTP options.

Unless there is a hack that I don't know of.

Effectively, documents notices that.

But, it seems that with Security Plus License, you could use 3 FastEthernet and 2 GigaEthernet ports on SSM-4GE, but I'm waiting for a confirmation from Cisco.
