Can anybody help me to understand the concept of FWSM module in 6500 switch and how the packet flow through FWSM ?



Hi Mathew,

The Firewall Services Module can be used in a variety of topologies depending on the needs of your network. For example, in a data center you may want to provide access control or segregate your security domains. The security domain can be a collection of servers with the same security level. Within that domain, multiple subnets or server farms can exist.

Check out the below link for basic intial configuration of FWSM

Hope to help !!
