Link between two devices in CiscoWorks

Unanswered Question
Aug 19th, 2010

Hi Guy's, I wonder if you could help me with this,

I have two switches connected through a ASA (transparent) and although I know that ASA's are not supported in campus manager because of the CDP, I would like to know if the connection between these two devices will not be shown in Topology View, at least it should display a direct connection between these two.

Any qick answer will be very appreciated

Thanks in advance

I have this problem too.

No, this will not work.  The ASA (even in transparent mode) does not forward CDP frames.  The devices will need to be directly connected to each other (or connected via a hub or non-CDP device) in order to be seen as CDP neighbors.
