Need verification of management interface usage on 5510

Hi,

I seem to get conflicting information on using the Management port as a regular routed interface on the ASA5510

This is the text in question:

The management interface can be used for the traffic that passes through the firewall as well. The Security Plus License for the ASA 5510 is required in order to use the management0/0 port as a regular interface. With a base license on the 5510, the management0/0 port cannot be used as a regular interface.

I believe that I saw another post that mentioned it was part of the standard IOS if you had a later version.

Can anybody validate this, one way or the other?

Thanks,

Dave

Yes, you are correct. Management interface can be used as a regular interface, just need to disable the "management-only" command.
