I have a 2811 router with a single BVI to a 2960 switch with 3 vlans. There is a transparent firewall on the 2811 router. Currently, traffic between 2 nodes on the same vlan segment traverses the transparent firewall causing latency. Is there a way to configure the vlan on the switch such that traffic will not be passed through the firewall when not leaving the vlan?
For example, a LAN based Nessus scan of hosts on VLAN1 from a port on VLAN1 causes the utilization on the router memory and processor to 100%. Thanks,
