" 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 commandline and from the ASDM GUI." --Mark Macumber, Systems Engineer, Cisco Cisco Firewall Video Mentor is a unique video product that provides you with more than five hours of personal visual instruction from best-selling author and lead network engineer David Hucaby. In the 16 videos presented on the DVD, David walks you through common Cisco(R) 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. Lab Layout: 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. Network Animation: Animated network diagrams show you lab setup, device addressing, and how traffic flows through the network. Command-Line Interface (CLI) Video: Video screencasts of ASA and FWSM CLI and the ASDM GUI demonstrate command entry, configuration techniques, and device response.
