Which Cisco Firewall?

Aug 21, 2007

We are looking to replace our existing WatchGuard Firebox's with a hopefully more reliable firewall from Cisco's range although I'm a bit lost when it comes to the different ranges.

Could somebody suggest a firewall that is capable of:

1: Both NAT & Drop-in (bridge) mode
2: Pretty low bandwidth requirements, no more than 10mbit/s traffic
3: SNMP Monitoring
4: High availability pairing

Cisco IOS Router Vs. ASA Firewall For Small Colo-racked Setup

May 3, 2008

I am in the process of gathering the peices to move from a dedicated box to my own hardware in a local colo and am undecided how best to choose the edge device.

The colo has a 30Mb pipe with about 10Mb of it being constantly used during biz hours. Another 10Mb is being allocated in the next couple of months. I want to be able to burst to the full 30Mb when needed.

I am getting 12 IP's allocated but will increase to 24 soon if all goes well (fingers crossed!).

I will have for starters just a single Proliant running dnp on 2008 with IIS, FTP, Mail, ns1 and a 2003 VM running my secondary ns.

What I am unsure of is the edge device and looking for others that have used either a 2800 series router or a ASA5500 series firewall in a similiar fashion. I know what the raw throughput of each device is, but raw benchmarks are not realworld numbers by any means.

I am looking at the 2801 with IOS Firewall turned on and hopefully even some inspects for FTP and HTTP traffic. The other option and one that I am less familiar with is to use the ASA5505 instead which will do my basic routing but supposedly provide more thourough inspects and advanced rules.

Does anyone have experiance with either of these in a hosting environment and have input on the realistic throughput one can expect from either device?

There is a signifigant cost difference with the ASA5505 being much cheaper but I am more familiar with IOS. Would anyone recommend a 1841 router instead?

Do You Recommend A Software Firewall When Behind A Hardware Firewall

Dec 17, 2008

Do you recommend a software firewall when behind a hardware firewall?

All of our servers are behind Cisco ASA 5505 firewalls which we rent from Liquidweb. All are being managed correctly and setup to there optimal levels. With hardware firewalls firmly in place, do you still recommend a software firewall such as APF or IPTables (we're talking linux); in our opinion we see it as an extra administration overhead. If this is however untrue, we will change out thinking.

Firewall - Kerio Or Windows Firewall

Jun 13, 2008

I've found a dedicated server at a great price and plan to stick with it, my first ( already have 2 vps accounts ). I don't have the money for a hardware firewall. However, I do have a chance to renew a Kerio WinRoute Firewall license from way back.

Does anyone think this would be better than the default windows 2003 firewall?

Please tell me, which series is best?:

The higher the better?..
Also what about submodels, like is 1650 better than 1600?

And how can I tell how much DRAM each one can take up to?

Cisco Guard

Apr 22, 2009

I see a lot of DDos related articles here at WHT. We've got hit multiple times by DDos and had to handle those attacks everytime with a different approach.

The largest one and the most well know one (we were in Times Mag, AP news, CNN, slashdot, you name it - just do a search about us on WHT) was Russian botnet cyberattack - we had to anaylyze netflow and then block everything on our edge routers, then on the firewall and then locally on the servers.

Since then we had number of other attacks, some of them we were not able to defend on the server level, while, as you can understand we can't do netwflow and manual intervention evey time somebody gets an attach.

We have very good scripts which allow to mitigate huge number of DDos attack, whet our scripts are finding attacking IPs and blocking them automatically - still some attacks could be blocked only on the router level.

I've read that Cisco Guard (I am interesed in 65xx version of it) suppose to mitigate DDos attacks in automatic mode.

Which Cisco Router To Use

Jul 11, 2007

I am currently looking at these Cisco switches:

- Cisco 2924 WS-C2924-XL-EN Enterprise Switch
- Cisco 2950 WS-C2950-24 Catalyst Switch
- Cisco 3512 WS-C3512-XL-EN Enterprise Switch
- Cisco 3524 WS-C3524-XL-EN Enterprise Switch
- Cisco 3548 WS-C3548-XL-EN Enterprise Switch

1) I was recommended to chose the XL-EN model switches because it seems they have more Memory, but the second one in the list (Catalyst) is not a XL-EN, is that going to have any affect performance wise? or it doesn't really matter?

2) I was also recommended to choose managed switches because that way I can use the SNMP features to measure bandwidth, are any of the switches above unmanaged?

3) I also want to be able to manage the switch remotely, web managed, are any of the switches above web-manageable?

4) Most importantly, when my datacenter give me a 100mbit drop, I dont know which port to plug it in in the 29** series. In the 35** I see it clearly but I am not able to see it in the 29**, any ideas?

5) On some of these switches I see a special port called "Console", what is it? where does that connect to?

6) Do any of the switches above not have a console port?

Cisco ASA Security

Sep 28, 2007

My network currently looks like this :

ISP ->> L3 Switch ->> Firewall (Transparent Mode) ->> Switch ->> Servers

I have a single /24 and my firewall is on x.2 and routes traffic for each of the servers.

Now i have a new Cisco ASA 5510 that i want to replace the aging firewall currently in place, however i dont want to put the firewall into transparent mode because i dont want to lose all the functionality.

Now with most firewalls your outside subnet cannot be the same as your inside subnet, which is fine if you are using NAT but i dont want to NAT. I need all of my servers to remain with their public ip addresses.

So what is the ideal way to setup something like this? Request my ISP give me a /30 for the ASA outside interface or something? And then ask them to route my /24 through the /30 new subnet?

Cisco Licensing

May 16, 2007

From the posts in this forum it would appear that a number of forumites are colocation service providers and web hosters that use Cisco gear.

I was reviewing the Cisco End User License Agreement that was included in the router box. Under the General Limitations section, "Customer shall have no right, and Customer specifically agrees not to:", item (iv) states, "use or permit the Software to be used to perform services for third parties, whether on a service bureau basis or time sharing basis or otherwise, without the express written authorization of Cisco".

Does this mean that a service provider is required to acquire
a separate license similar to the Microsoft Service provider license?

Cisco 2960G

Mar 1, 2007

I have a cisco 2960G switch that I used for colocation, the colocation provider does all the routing all I need is this switch. It's just a plug and play operation, however I now need to do some more difficult stuff.

So, I plugged their bandwidth uplink into port 20.

I have really no idea on how to setup anything other than the basic of the switch.

Is it possible to setup Private Vlans in this situation? I am in need of a setup like this:

All port 1-19 in private vlans, but still able to communicate with port 20 to get internet access. Port 1-19 cannot communicate with each other except by going through port 20, through the internet.

I also want to know if it's possible to statically assign each port with a specific IP? Just say I want all traffic to a static ip to only go to port 1? Is that possible? I want to be able to limit the control of IPs through the switch not through the server.

Right now all my IPs are assign on the server level, meaning the server can take each other IPs and mess with each other connections.
