I want to connect my cisco ASA5505 directly to the routers of my provider. My provider has 2 separate router running HSRP in between. Can i connect port 1 of my asa to 1 provider router and port 2 to the other router, each configured as outside without placing a switch between asa and provider router?
I think it can as you create a default route to the hsrp address of the router interface and the hsrp will deliver it to the active router. So if 1 router fails it will deliver its traffic to the other? Is it also possible to build a vpn between other sites in this config?
I think it can but one of my colleagues is doubting about it.
