“The Cisco Firewall Video Mentor is an outstanding aide in learning to configure and understand the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance. Whether you are a newcomer to the ASA or operationally experienced, these videos clearly explain and demonstrate how to configure and manage the ASA from the command line and from the ASDM GUI.”

–Mark Macumber, Systems Engineer, Cisco

Cisco Firewall Video Mentor is a unique video product that teaches you how to configure and maintain Cisco firewalls to optimize the security of your networks.

In the 16 videos presented on the DVD, best-selling author and CCIE network engineer David Hucaby walks you through common Cisco firewall configuration and troubleshooting tasks. Designed to develop and enhance hands-on skills, each 10—30 minute video guides you through essential configuration tasks on the Cisco ASA and FWSM platforms and shows you how to verify that firewalls are working correctly. You will learn how to design and configure appropriate firewall rules and features based on a set of security policies, validate firewall configurations to prove that the security policies are being met as expected, troubleshoot problem that arise from misconfigured features or security policies that need to be updated, and collect and analyze audit trails of network activity. Each video lab presents objectives, dynamic lab topology diagrams, command syntax overviews, and video captures of command-line input and GUI configuration. All of this is coupled with thorough audio instruction by an industry expert making learning easy and engaging. Animated network diagrams show you lab setup, device addressing, and how traffic flows through the network. Video screencasts of ASA and FWSM CLI and the ASDM GUI demonstrate command entry, configuration techniques, and device response.
