• You should use the high-capacity bus slots (5, 7, 8) for 10-Gigabit Ethernet adapters; other
adapters can be placed in any slot.
• Distribute traffic on the I/O bridges using the following best practices:
– Have equal amounts of traffic on both I/O bridges.
– Keep traffic flow within the same I/O bridge.
For example, the ideal traffic distribution would be:
a. Half the traffic stays on slots 7 and 8.
b. The other half of the traffic stays on slots 3 through 6.
Steps a and b achieve both best practices above. If you cannot achieve both practices, then you
should prefer the first best practice: have equal amounts of traffic on both I/O bridges.
See the Hardware Installation Guide for more information about maximizing throughput on the
ASA 5580.

4 Connecting Interface Cables and Verifying Connectivity
Step 1
Connect to the Management 0/0 interface so that you can use ASDM to manage the ASA.You
can connect the PC directly with an Ethernet cable, or connect the PC and the ASA to the same
management network. Make sure the PC is configured to obtain an IP address using DHCP.
The ASA 5580 has 2 management interfaces (Management 0/0 and Management 0/1);
however, only Management 0/0 is configured for use.
If you want to use the CLI, connect your PC to the console port, and see the CLI configuration
guide for more information.
Step 2
Connect your networks to the appropriate ports.
The ASA 5580 has nine expansion slots. Slots 3 through 8 support PCI Express network
interface adapters. Slots 1, 2, and 9 are reserved. Your exact configuration depends on the
configuration you purchased.

5 Launching ASDM
The ASA ships with a default configuration that enables ASDM connectivity to the Management 0/0
interface. Using ASDM, you can use wizards to configure basic and advanced features. ASDM is a
graphical user interface that allows you to manage the ASA from any location by using a web browser.
See the ASDM release notes on Cisco.com for the requirements to run ASDM.
Step 1
On the PC connected to the ASA, launch a web browser.
Step 2
In the Address field, enter the following URL: https://192.168.1.1/admin. The Cisco ASDM
web page appears.
Step 3
Click Run Startup Wizard.
Step 4
Accept any certificates according to the dialog boxes that appear. The Cisco ASDM-IDM
Launcher appears.
Step 5
Leave the username and password fields empty, and click OK. The main ASDM window
appears and the Startup Wizard opens.
6
6 Running the Startup Wizard
Run the Startup Wizard to modify the default configuration so that you can customize the security
policy to suit your deployment. Using the startup wizard, you can set the following:
• Hostname
• Static routes
• Domain name
• DHCP server
• Administrative passwords
• Network address translation rules
• Interfaces
• and more...
• IP addresses
Step 1
If the wizard is not already running, in the main ASDM window, choose Wizards > Startup
Wizard.
Step 2
Follow the instructions in the Startup Wizard to configure your ASA.
Step 3
While running the wizard, you can accept the default settings or change them as required. (For
information about any wizard field, click Help.)
7
7 (Optional) Allowing Access to Public Servers Behind the
ASA
ASA 8.2 and Later
The Public Server pane automatically configures the security policy to make an inside server accessible
from the Internet. As a business owner, you might have internal network services, such as a web and
FTP server, that need to be available to an outside user. You can place these services on a separate
network behind the ASA, called a demilitarized zone (DMZ). By placing the public servers on the
DMZ, any attacks launched against the public servers do not affect your inside networks.
Step 1
In the main ASDM window, choose Configuration > Firewall > Public Servers. The Public
Server pane appears.
Step 2
Click Add, then enter the public server settings in the Add Public Server dialog box. (For
information about any field, click Help.)
Step 3
Click OK. The server appears in the list.
Step 4
Click Apply to submit the configuration to the ASA.
8
8 (Optional) Running VPN Wizards
You can configure VPN using the following wizards:
• Site-to-Site VPN Wizard—Creates an IPsec site-to-site tunnel between two ASAs.
• AnyConnect VPN Wizard—Configures SSL VPN remote access for the Cisco AnyConnect VPN
client. AnyConnect provides secure SSL connections to the ASA for remote users with full VPN
tunneling to corporate resources. The ASA policy can be configured to download the AnyConnect
client to remote users when they initially connect via a browser. With AnyConnect 3.0 and later,
the client can run either the SSL or IPsec IKEv2 VPN protocol.
• Clientless SSL VPN Wizard—Configures clientless SSL VPN remote access for a browser.
Clientless, browser-based SSL VPN lets users establish a secure, remote-access VPN tunnel to the
ASA using a web browser. After authentication, users access a portal page and can access specific,
supported internal resources. The network administrator provides access to resources by users on
a group basis. ACLs can be applied to restrict or allow access to specific corporate resources.
• IPsec (IKEv1) Remote Access VPN Wizard—Configures IPsec VPN remote access for the Cisco
IPsec client.
9
Step 1
In the main ASDM window, choose Wizards > VPN Wizards, then choose one of the
following:
• Site-to-Site VPN Wizard
• AnyConnect VPN Wizard
• Clientless VPN Wizard
• IPsec (IKEv1) Remote Access VPN Wizard
Step 2
10
Follow the wizard instructions. (For information about any wizard field, click Help.)
9 (Optional) Running Other Wizards in ASDM
You can optionally run the following additional wizards in ASDM:
• High Availability and Scalability Wizard
Configure active/active or active/standby failover, or VPN cluster load balancing.
• Unified Communications Wizard
Configure a proxy on the ASA for remote access or business-to-business communications. (Special
licenses may apply. See the CLI configuration guide for information about ASA licensing.)
• Packet Capture Wizard
Configure and run packet capture. The wizard will run one packet capture on each of the ingress
and egress interfaces. After capturing packets, you can save the packet captures to your PC for
examination and replay in the packet analyzer.
