i have a data centre which needs a firewall in front of it and i'm being told to use a fwsm since there is a 6500 in place
my problem is i don't manage the switch and i prefer the idea of physical separation
i also have no experience of dealing with the fwsm - is it exactly the same as the asa and has it the same full functionality
also does it use the 6500 switch for inbound and outbound ports?
thanks to anyone taking the time to reply
