hi mohamed

You can place the primary and secondary FWSMs within the same switch or in two separate switches

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/fwsm/fwsm31/configuration/guide/fail_f.html#wp1140822

* The FWSM does not support Virtual Private Network

(VPN) termination except for use in management, whereas the PIX, ASA, and IOS-based

devices all have that capability.

good luck

hope this helpful
