2                                        outside                          down                             Et0/0

2. used the “show int ip brief” to view the configured interfaces
Moreover, TestASA(config)# show int ip brief
Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol
Furthermore, Ethernet0/0 unassigned YES unset down down
Ethernet0/1 unassigned YES unset up up. Learn More

Note: On a Cisco switch its “show ip interface brief”

3. use the “show ip add” command to view the configured IP address of the interfaces and vlans
Nonetheless, TestASA(config)# show ip add
System IP Addresses:
Interface Name IP address Subnet mask Method
Vlan1 inside 192.1xx.1xx.xx CONFIG
However, Current IP Addresses:
Interface Name IP address Subnet mask Method
Moreover, Vlan1 inside 192.1xx.1xx.xx CONFIG

4. To display the configured http server if configured “show run http
Furthermore, TestASA(config-if)# show run http
http server enable
http inside

5. To display the configured Telnet connection “show run telnet
Nonetheless, TestASA(config)# show run telnet
telnet inside
telnet timeout 1000

  • 6. To display the configured ssh connection “show run ssh
