As stated in the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Configuration Guide Using the CLI Release 4.0.pdf, "If you do not want the overhead of security contexts, or want to maximize your use of security contexts, you can configure up to eight pairs of interfaces, called bridge groups. Each bridge group connects to a separate network. Bridge group traffic is isolated from other bridge groups; (p 113, section 5-7)"
That sounds like the FWSM only supports 8 transparent firewalls contexts.
However, in the product bullit "New Cisco Catalyst 6500 Firewall Security System Bundle with Supervisor Engine 720-3BXL" it says that the FWSM will support 250 firewall contexts.
So my question is, if I do place the transparent firewall into a context, will it actually support 250 transparent firewall?
I have not been able to find any supporting documentation.
Thanks in advance,
