FWSM outside connects to a Router
FWSM inside connects to a Router and an ACE
At present FWSM uses static routing.
We want to allow RIP routing process between the two routers, through the FWSM, while continue to use static routing for other requirements.
Any pointers to how to pass RIP through FWSM or even if we can route RIP in FWSM, would be appriciated.
Is your FWSM in routed or transparent mode. If routed mode then your firewall would need to participate in RIP exchange routes with both routers. The FWSM can support RIP.
Note that the FWSM only supports dynamic routing protocols of you are in single mode. If you are in multi mode then you only have static routing as an option.
If you are in transparent mode then you can simply allow RIP updates between the 2 routers through/
