latency with transparent vs routed firewall modes

Answered Question
Feb 12th, 2009

Hi there,

I've never used transparent firewalling and I'm wondering if there are any differences in the latency introduced by a firewall in routed mode vs transparent mode. Does anyone know if it's even an issue? Traffic loads will be around 100-200Mbps.

Thanks,

--Brandon

I have this problem too.

There should be no difference. they both process ACL's but the transparent FW doesn't support NAT. Might see a slight difference if you are and then aren't doing NAT but I seriously doubt it.
