Hi Srini,

Do you want to have One single FW connecting to the 2ISP's or you need Two FW's (context mode) ?


You need to check your requirements because there are some restrictions when you configure the ASA FW in multiple context mode.

Services like VPN, dynamic routing protocols etc won't work.


You can also check this sample configuration on Cisco site for Multiple ISP configuration.

It is called 'multiple context' mode. Here is a sample config:
