WAE-512 & ASA 5510 A/S

Unanswered Question
Nov 23rd, 2007

Hi, we have a stack of switches (L3) when connected the internal LAN and DMZ, two ASA5510 in Active/Standby mode and a 2811 router.

We want to put the WAE512 in the inside side of Firewalls managing the traffic of interlan LAN and DMZ, because as we finish the IPSec Tunnels on ASAs we think the WAE can't manage encrypted traffic.

How can we do this??

Our WAE has the Inline network adapter.

I have this problem too.

The Cisco Wide Area Application Engine (WAE) product family offers a single, consolidated platform allowing users to run either Cisco ACNS or Cisco WAFS Software and also rely on a common hardware sparing model, simplifying operations and lowering overall cost. These new WAE models offer a superior solution for application acceleration for Web-based and applications servers, file servers, and streaming video.

The WAE can be placed in the inside of the firewalls, so long as the ASAs are running a version of code that supports the 'inspect waas' command. This will allow the ASA to continue to inspect optimized flows.
