a few questions on the ACE

Unanswered Question
Jun 24th, 2009

I am getting up to speed on the ACE and was wondering if someone could please clarify a couple of things for me as the docs I am using are pretty confusing.

We have the ACE module in a Cisco 65XX switch, along with FWSM.

1) Do I need to create a Layer 3 int on the switch for the Vlan's that I have assigned to the ACE?

2) I have created a Layer 3 Client side and a Server side Vlans on the ACE. Do I need to create a default gateway for each of these Vlan's or create just one DG and point it to the switch?

3)Do I need to create a class map, a policy map and a service policy for the Client and Server Vlan L3 interfaces on the ACE?

Thanks much.

I have this problem too.

you don't need an interface on the MSFC unless you want to use it as a gateway for the ACE. You could also use the FWSM as DG in which case you don't need an interface on the MSFC.

Only 1 DG is enough.

Class-map/policy-map and service policy are the instructions to tell ACE what to do.

If you do not use configure any, ACE is just a router.

So, depending on what you want to do, you will need to configure something.
