If you have already worked on PIX, ASA should be easy and its almost the same, with the new 7.x version !!! If not, you got to study some basics of firewalling, and then get to know the advance modules of ASA, if any !!!!
I am currently debating right now as to whether I should get a 501 or a 515 from ebay. I like the idea of a 515 since it will run version 7.x, which would be what the ASA will be running at my new job.
Would it be worth it to work on a 7.x over a 6.3 version? Is their THAT much of a difference? I have pretty much worked in a 6.1 version.
Thanks David. That was excellent information and something that really helps me make a more informed decision.
Would working with a 515 and 7.x be beneficial to working with an ASA appliance? I might be wrong, but I think the ASA run the same version as PIX? The only difference is that the ASA is newer and has some extra modules that you can basically plug in?
Looks like the latest version is 7.2 just looking at the docs for both PIX and ASA.
