I've been quiet for several months now. I have actually been writing but not posting. The big reason for the silence is that I've been slowly converting my own Firewall from a PIX 501 over to an ASA 5505. While that may not seem much of a leap to many readers I decided to look at the transition from several points of view; converting from the 501 automagically and starting from scratch. I also upgraded my Internet service from a single DHCP from a cable modem to a higher bandwidth cable connection that provides 5 fixed IP addresses. I look forward to sharing this experience with interested readers over the next weeks and months.
