Hi - I am new to Cisco NetPro forum,
I have a dilemma/question relating to bridging two networks utilising an ASA 5505 device.
We are in the process of connecting two MPLS networks with a 4Mbps link, for example:
MPLS 1 Network address is 188.8.131.52/24 - there are remote branch networks that connect to this network and those remote branch networks address range are: 184.108.40.206/24, 220.127.116.11/24, 18.104.22.168/24 etc.
Now, the second MPLS (MPLS 2) network address is 192.168.1.0/24 and again this network also has remote branch networks connecting to it and those network address range are: 192.168.2.0/24, 192.168.3.0/24, 192.168.4.0/24 etc.
We are in the middle of a company merger and are looking (in the short term) to bridge the two network utilising a spare ASA 5505 firewall, the requirements are that all 22.214.171.124/24 devices/traffic flow can connect to resources on the 192.168.0.0/24 network and vice versa - of course we will look at controlling which resource/service the 126.96.36.199 devices can contact using access lists.
All internet access for the 188.8.131.52 network will travel via 192.168.0.0 network.
We will connect the ASA on one end of the 4Mbps link, possibly on the 192.168.0.0 side.
My question to all experts - can you please recommend the best solution (with configuration examples) for the above scenario i.e. can I use the ASA 5505 as a bridge and if yes can you please help me?
I wait for your valued response or if you need any further information.
