Viewing ACL in a GUI without a firewall

Unanswered Question
Jun 18th, 2009

Hello,

In my line of work i have to Q&A firewall configurations ASAs, FWSW, and etc. Alot of times, I find myself loading the configs into the ASA and using ASDM to view the ACLs to see if nothing good is blocked.

My problem is I dont always have an ASA near me all the time. Is there a utility that can show me the ACLS in a GUI (like ASDM) but it doesn't have to connect to a firewall. I can feed the config to it directly.

I was about to write a program to do this, but it might already be available?

Thanks all.

I have this problem too.

I find reading the CLI easier than ASDM. I would suggest learning to read an ACL from the CLI, it will be worth the effort. Post if you need help with reading them.

Install ASDM Demo.

Go to the programme files/cisco/asdm/versionofasdm/Single_firewall/configs

Backup the actual file "config" and just copy your ASA config in this folder with the name "config".

Now run the asdm demo with the scenarion "single firewall".

You should see almost your configuration. But for the ACL, it's working fine.
