Even an old ASA5505 is better than consumer routers…

The ASA5505

I’ve been using an ASA5506 at home. The ASA5506 is a beast for a home router. I’m using the Security plus edition ASA and the licenses included greatly exceed anything I need.

I also powered up an old ASA5505 to do some DMZ Windows Server 2016 testing, and I’m always surprised at how much I miss using the switchports. I really wish the ASA5506 had switchports 🙁 Oh well. In any case even the base model of the ASA5505 is more than I could ever get out of a consumer grade router. I feel like once you go enterprise you never look back. I couldn’t imagine consumer grade equipment anymore.

From Physical to Virtual

Cisco VIRLUp until now I’ve been learning networking with just my home lab. I have a great home lab that I have invested a decent amount of time and resources into.However, setting up a new topology for different routing and switching exercises can be time consuming.

Just lately I decided to invest in Cisco’s VIRL. Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) is truly amazing! I can quickly design complex topologies and deploy them with a click of the mouse.

I admit it took a day or so to get it setup and working right, but using it is well worth the effort!

PLUS! I can integrate my existing hardware with the virtual network! That is truly amazing.

So now I don’t need to worry about having wasted precious $$$ on my physical hardware because I can put it to good use!

Although I will need to ditch 3 of my older switches. They served me well, but they cannot be upgraded past IOS 12.2, so they need to find a new home. I have some ideas where they can go!
