Virtual Firewall Configuration

Answered Question
Apr 22nd, 2010

Hi,


Trying to configure Virtual firewall as per the document:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps1018/products_configuration_example09186a00809492a4.shtml


Configured the vrf like this:


ip vrf acct


and  added to sub-interface


ip vrf forwarding acct


When this command is given it pops an  error:


"VRF acct not configured."  VRF acct is configured earlier.


Even after  IP inspection rule applied or  not applied same error pops up!!



Above mentioned documents states "Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.3(14)T introduced Virtual (VRF-aware)  Firewall"  I am using


ROM: 3600 Software (C3640-JK9O3S-M), Version 12.3(14)T7, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)


Is this error due to IOS image.


Please share the experience


Thanks

Hello Subodh,

you need at least to configure the route distinguisher under VRF config


ip vrf acct

rd 100:101

!


to start the VRF effectively


the document is not correct in this part rd is mandatory cannot be omitted


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Hi,


Thanks Giuslar.


That Cisco document confused me a lots. I could configure overlaping private IP subnets and it's working.
