I was about to ask for a recommendation for a replacement for my Cisco ASA, mostly because I am a programmer that due to the necessity of work has to dive headfirst into some Network Administration tasks - "Oh, he's the tech guy, he knows all about that stuff!"
However, before I wrote the question, it occurred to me that these are likely off topic for ServerFault. However, the problem I have is very specific:
- I have Cisco ASA ###1
- I want to buy a Cisco ASA ABCD ###2 that does the exactly the same things as my current box except one more feature that my current box doesn't support (hardware).
I tried doing some googling, but I didn't understand so much of what I read that I thought it would be best to ask experts. We have a very expensive consultant who will do the box configuration for us, but I thought I could save a little money and shipping time by buying the box and having it shipped straight to us. At the very least, an answer telling me where to look would be reusable by other users.
Would such a question on topic?
