IOS based firewall

Unanswered Question
May 6th, 2010

Hi,

We have a 3845 with integrated zone based firewall functionality. I am trying to see what are the maxium specifications in terms of this firewall function or limitations on it. Couldnt find wide docu which gives details as in rate of connections, connection count limitations etc.I would really appreciate if any of you can help me with this.

Also, as this is basically all acl entries similar to routers, how does this affect/stress the basic functioning of the platform on which this is loaded.Like no. of acl lines that are considered to be optimal and not too taxing on the platform.

Thanks in advance!

I have this problem too.
