Recommendation required ASA/ASDM software

Dear Experts,

I am going to have an installation for ASA 5520 with AIP-SSM10.

I will be doing site-to-site VPN, Remote Access VPN and also SSL VPN on ASA.

I want suggestions related to the ASA version. After reading release notes for version 8 i am thinking about version 8.0 but I am not sure about the stability of version 8.0

can someone advice me which ASA version I should go for it.

Thanks a lot in advance

Re: Recommendation required ASA/ASDM software

I have deployed version 8.0(3) on quite a few ASA and PIX devices without any problems. I don't see a clear reason why you shouldn't use version 8 of the code. Just make sure to read the release notes to ensure that there are not any bugs related to your organization's setup.

Re: Recommendation required ASA/ASDM software

Actually i am going to the following on the firewall.

1. 10 Site to site VPN from Routers to ASA

2. 10 SSL Vpn connection to ASA

3. 200+ remote access VPN on ASA.

4. INLINE IPS using AIP-SSM-10 on ASA

5. Active Directory integration for remote access VPN and SSL VPN.

6. DHCP pool on ASA.

7. Lot of different kinds of Natting.

Actually I am also looking the advice if anyone setup this kind of scenario or near to this kind. I really don't want to play first and reach to the stable configuration. I am trying to start with the most recommend ASA/ASDM versions.

BTW how did you find ASDM 6.0 for impmentation & also day to day management?.

Re: Recommendation required ASA/ASDM software

I like the ASDM for installation and management for the ASA/PIX devices. Version 6 has worked well for me. The VPN wizards are helpful in setting up both SSL and IPSec remote access VPNs as well as Site to Site connections. I have setup similiar secenarios for clients in the past, so there isn;t anything really crazy in your list. The biggest thing to do is to make sure that you size the device properly for your needs.
