Tomorrow I have to configure HSRP between two Cisco routers and a non-Cisco firewall.
The first router provides WAN connectivity, the second is for back-up reasons.
The firewall Trusted port is for the customer LAN and the Untrusted I can connect towards the WAN.
As the firewall and the two routers have to be in the same ethernet segment. Correct?
So can I put a transparent switch between the FW and the routers?
Or is there any other solution to do this?
The primary router is a 1841 and a 878 as back-up.
There is no switch card in the 1841, so I can only use the on-board IF's.
Thanks for the help
