We have a remote branch with an ASA5505 firewall. Is it possible to access the firewall securely/SSH and configure a DMZ on the above?

It's perfectly possible but you would need to have setup SSH/VPN access first. In addition you would need to have the ASA interface that you want to configure as a DMZ interface already patched into a switch and you would probably, although not necessarily, need access to the switch.


If you don't already SSH access setup then unless you can connect through the ASA onto a router/switch inside the remote branch and then connect back to the ASA device you would need to visit the site, or talk someone through setting up SSH.

Jon,


SSH is setup in the remote ASA5505. I can walk someone to connect a computer to an open port on the firewall. Now I have to research configuring using IOS, rather than using ASDM. Thanks.
