From the Author
This book, like the others in the Accidental Administrator series, is based on the student workbooks I wrote for my IT training workshops. I specialize in accelerated training and this book reflects that approach to learning: lots of material, delivered in a short amount of time. I wrote it with the idea of giving you an abundance of hands-on exercises and only the essential bits of theory and background information. I tried to include many tips and shortcuts that I've learned and used in managing Cisco ASA Security Appliances. This book IS designed to help you get a Cisco ASA up and running quickly. It is NOT designed to provide a lot of theory or background information on how the device operates. It was a lot of fun for me to write (especially going back through and testing the exercises) and I hope you enjoy it, too.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If I may do just a couple of suggestion for future editions:
First, I don't see the point of sometimes repeating the commands twice, first within the text, and secondly within a screenshot. For instance, at page 42 (Configure Port Address Translation), the set of four commands are repeated twice.
Second, why not quote the VIRL platform, instead of always referring to real equipment? I have been following the text with VIRL virtualization without any problem. I strongly believe that VIRL is a great platform for learning Cisco technologies, so it deserves to be quoted at any Cisco textbook.
Anyway, thank you very much to Don Crawley for his great work, and I would like to encourage him in the same way with other topics.
PD: sorry for my English, I am writing from Spain.
It fell short with its basic and "hello world"ish examples.
Not as good as I imagined
