Why naming is required in ASA

Hi All,

Can anyone maybe explain to me the concept that--

Why naming is required in ASA like inside, outside, public, Private and dmz etc  ? 

Is it possible to configure asa without assign any name to its interface?

Regards,

Saurabh

Yes, naming the interfaces are required for ASA as all translation, policy, failover, access-list configuration is assigned by name configured on each interface.

Saurabh,

It is not possible to configure an interface without a name and security level.

It is like using numbers like room 1, room2, room3 instead of kitchen room, living room and bedroom in a house. It makes sense and easy to follow.

check this link on configuring interfaces: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa82/configuration/guide/intrface.html
