We have a cisco 6500 switch on which we have lot of VLANS configured. Now we are moving some of the VLAN traffic filtering on the firewall which will be the next HOP.But, some of the L3 VLANS will be still working on the switch.
Now, If we are moving the traffic filtering on to the firewall,
we are shutting down the VLANs created on the switch so that the L2 functionality will forward the packets to the firewall.
If we shut down the VLAN will the L2 functionality work properly??
As some of the VLans still will be on the switch do i need to configure trunking on the ports connected to switch so that the traffic from the vlan passess to switch??
I am a bit confused on this..Please help as i need to implement this by the week end...
