April 2021 - All Things ASA

So the last few months I have been slowly chipping away at items on the blueprint in kind of an arbitrary order. This was great as I was able to focus on some weaker areas first & things I wanted to cover. However, this kept me away from covering certain items which made me realize I needed to revisit my plan. So, I want to start targeting monthly topics which will allow me to better track progress and blueprint items.

The month of April is going to be all things ASA. From understanding mode types, contexts, high availability options, IP connectivity, NAT, VPN types, etc. (you name it). Buckle in & enjoy the ride (content). Thanks for staying with me, Cheers!
