FWSM--vlan 7--ACE-vlan 8---servers with default gateway as FWSM
originally there were no plans of servers looking to load balance traffic when they wanted to communicate each other. now there is a need this
since ACE is in bridge mode, there are no ip address to VLAN configured on it and cant do source NAT
what we want servers in serverfarm A can contact a single ip which can be load balanced and traffic to be sent to serverfarm B. both serverfarms reside in vlan 8 and ace is in bridge. with VLAN not having IP how can we get this working. we were looking to create a policy on ACE with an ip address in vlan 8 and then do a source NAT to send the traffic to serverfarm 7.
with FWSM as the default gateway, by enabling permit intra traffic , it doesnt work because the command routes the traffic, dont think will send the traffic back to the same vlan
e.g static (inside,outside) 10.7.0.1 10.7.8.13 and allow intra traffic.
so when a machine 10.7.8.11 pings 10.7.0.1 it goes to the FWSM but fwsm doesnt look for 10.7.8.13
with ACE in bridge and FWSM doing above how to get around. can something be done on ACE in bridge mode with source NAT
