Hey guys, Leggy's back!

I have developed another question. It is in regards to Cisco's ASA 5505 device. I've been on their website the past couple of days trying to figure out if it is just a security device, or if it could be used as a router as well.

I've also seen references to it being a firewall, which I expected since it is a "security device".

I chatted with some of their support and the representative said it was capable of acting as a router but also told me that "it could not act as a firewall", however "it is a firewall". When I attempted to gather more clarity he just reiterated the router function. But everything I've looked at has indicated a firewall.

So I was just looking for anyone who has worked with the system and could back this claim up. I would, again, be most appreciative!

Thanks all!


There are three ways to do things, the right way, the wrong way and my way, which is the wrong way, only faster.

Cisco ASA 5505 is mainly used as firewall or security device, but not router. You can more info from this Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security webpage.
