How do you guys like the ASA?

We're presently running a PIX 515E on 6.35, with a IDS-4210, and I'm thinking about upgrading to an ASA-5510. Anyone do this, and if so, how do you like it?

Re: How do you guys like the ASA?

We have an ASA5510 at our place, and it seems to work well. ASA5510 has a bit less throughput than the 515E unrestricted so you need to consider that. I like the device so far though. We have had it in for about 5 months, and the only real problem weve had is the MLS issue that all 7.x code has. Basically, the 7.x code for pix and ASA block malformed MLS data. In 6.3.5 it doesnt. The result is that there are certain sites that end up being blocked for websurfing, etc. You have to manually add the site IP address to an accepted policy list. I have run into 2 so far, so it isn't a big deal for us. It may be more of an issue for others.
