Enable HTTP on FWSM 2.3

Unanswered Question

Hello everyone,


I am looking for advice on whether we should enable the web interface on our FWSM 2.3(3)2. We just upgraded from 1.1, which had it disabled because I was told it wasn't worth the security risk. Is the web interface in 2.3(3)2 any better? I sure would like something easier to use than the CLI, especially for viewing logs etc.


TIA,


Jim

Hello,


The 2.3(3)2 pdm is not the best management software in the world if your just using it for monitoring that would probably be fine. I wouldn't use it for making configuration changes.


To answer your question its not going to open a big hole if you have your permit "http x.x.x.x 255.255.255.255 inside" statement is only specifying specific hosts.

Well it depends on what your use to. If you know exatly what you want its usually easier with command line. Viewing stats in it is ok mostly because there is usually things that you can monitor that you may not have thought to look at from the command line.

Jim,


No problem if you find that you really like it let me know what it is that you enjoyed. I'm just waiting for it to be more like ASDM.
