ora ho due firewall nuovi ma installati di cui non so che farmene ...
I bought this for my home for two goals - VPN in and better firewall protection than what an ASUS router comes in with.
I prefer working on CLI, in the last few years with the push towards GUI, Cisco ASA's have become a lot less intuitive when configured from the CLI. GUI isn't so great either.
I've known Cisco to provide hardware and then charge extra for Licenses to enable features in the Enterprise space. So for home use I expected them to ask more money for Firepower etc. I didn't feel the need for firepower so I didn't bother with that.
I do care about ability to VPN in - which at the time when I purchased it was provided along with VPN client software for Windows and Mac (version 3.1). Now < 2 years later, after a routine OS upgrade on my MacBook, the VPN client stops working. I contact Cisco and jump through a few hoops just to get a ticket opened. And then I am told that I need to buy a contract/upgrade in order to download version 4.x. This to me is a new low for a company I once admired.
I refuse to do that because I've already paid for that functionality when I bought the ASA. I expected a company like Cisco to support the features I paid for until the End of life of the product. I'm not expecting configuration or installation assistance or any new features from them.
Simply a basic VPN client that was promised when I bought the Firewall. But their Supports unwillingness to do that leaves me with no choice but to stop supporting/recommending Cisco going forward.
If you are a home user or a small business owner then give other competitors a fair shake.
I must state the vendor did accept a return and gave me a refund after I explained the problem, so they are honest as far as that is concerned.
If I was not technically knowledgeable on Cisco products, I would not have known what I received, and would have had issues once it was out of warranty.
The ASA5506 is a great firewall (I work with the higher end business products), so my review is not on the firewall itself.
Cisco might exchange it for you, but why buy it new here and turn around and go through the replacement process with Cisco?
** Note: I was not allowed to post links to the Cisco field notice and exchange process, so you'll have to find the information yourself.
If you need further information Google: Cisco Field Notice FN - 64228 - ASA 5506, ASA 5506W, ASA 5506H, ASA 5508, and ASA 5516 Might Fail After 18 Months or Longer Due to Clock Signal Component Failure–Replacement Available for Items Under Warranty or Service Contract.
In summary, it is OK to buy from this vendor, just make sure you don't get one that is affected. You should really keep this in mind with any vendor you might decide to buy a firewall series included in this notice.
