I have a 7600 router with a FWSM.
The FWSM is not active at the moment.
The 7600 has a fibre connection west to the ring and a connection east to the same fibre ring. There are multiple routers on the ring but the 7600 in the headend router.
I have multiple VLANs on the 7600.
2,3,4,5 used for server farms.
102,103,104 used for linking to west routers.
202,203,204 used for linking to east routers.
10 - connection to a PIX
All these VLANs have SVI's
OSPF is running on all VLANs.
There is a static default route to the PIX.
No that we have the FWSM with a 50 context license we would like to remove the PIX and setup the FWSM as our firewall.
I have read the FWSM docs and DataCentre SRND but I am having problems deciding whether to have the FWSM routing or tranparent.
I would like to keep all my VLAN SVIs in place using VLAN 2 as the inside and create a new VLAN for the FWSM outside interface.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
