I want to setup an out of bound management link so we can ssh to our cisco devices and RDP toour microsoft servers. This is my setup (based on what I know):
Internet >>>DSL modem>>>ASA 5505 >>>CONSOLE MANAGEMENT SWITCH>>>CISCO SWITCH or Windwos server
Internet>>>1841 with DSL HWIC>>>CONSOLE MANAGEMENT SWITCH>>>CISCO SWITCH or Windwos server
My questions are:
Should I go for ASA or 1841 router?
Which options is better? and can ASA do the job?
Are there any technical support prior purchasing the products in Australia? I need technical advice on choosing the right products, not justs elling me products.
Its highly suggested to go with ASA 5505 in first place, its the device supposed to be doing the main ssl vpn server functionality when compared to 1841 which has this additional feature to be a vpn server.
Also ASDM gives you the liberty to config the box on your own based on your requirement.
