Re: ASA 5510 Standalone

Unlike PIX where you cannot run/use Standby/Failover unit as standalone unit, ASA allows you to use them as Active/Standby, Active/Active or operates as individual unit.

You can always deploy the boxes to any separate location to have more control (firewalling) over your network. In this case, you can let the primary/active unit running, remove the failover config and take the standby unit away.

The only reason you put/cluster them together is to achieve high availability.

Re: ASA 5510 Standalone

hi there is no pre-defined limit of number of acls on asa or pix. but yes sooner after a 1000 acls u will seea performance delay. best way to use them is to create object-groups and use them. it will really reduce the number of acls required for it.
