Cisco FMC Site to Site VPN

In this post I will show you how to configure an IKEv1 site to site VPN on Cisco FMC. The FMC we are going to use in this lab is running version 6.6 in evaluation mode. However, with the older versions the process is pretty much the same.

Add FTD to FMC

Adding a virtual or a physical FTD appliance to the FMC is a fairly simple process. In this post I will show you how to do it and we will be working on an FMC appliance running version 6.6.0. Cisco just released the version 6.6.0 which has a few new features and a bunch of improvements.

FMC AD Realm

In this post we will cover all the required steps to create a realm on Cisco FMC with AD, but let me first explain in a nutshell what is a realm and why we need it. There is a couple of requirements that we need to configure on the FMC before an identity policy can work properly. One of the requirements is the realm and another is the agent that will actively or passively feed the FMC with the users and groups IP mapping and their login activities on the domain controller.

FMC External Authentication with RADIUS

In this post, I am going to show you how to set up FMC external authentication with RADIUS. Why we would need that?!, simply put, to have a scalable solution in our environment that will allow us to manage accesses to our FMC appliance. Even if we configure the FMC with an external authentication server, we do still have the local admin account enabled that we can use in case the external authentication server is down.

Packet Capture in FMC

In this post, I am going to show you how to run a packet capture on Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC). As we know, both FTD and FMC are Linux based which means we can rely on a few tools that are embedded in Linux operating system. In fact, when you log into the FMC or when you go into Expert mode on FTD, you will see that the majority of the commands you use are simply Linux commands.
