I know that I firewall can pass VRF routed traffic, but can you actually configure a VRF instance on a ASA or FWSM?

thank you,

Kevin,


I think running FWSM/ASA with multiple context is same as having multiple VRFs in router. As using context you can get same functionality as vrf such as separate routing table, ACLs on the per context basis. So each context will act as separate standalone firewall.
