I'm setting up two 5510's.
e0/0 and e0/1 are GIG
e0/2 e0/3 and management are 100Mb
At the moment I have my outside assigned to e0/0 and inside on e0/1.
I was wondering if its ok to use on of the 100Mbs ports for the stateful failover connection or is that strongly reccomended against?
I want to keep the inside interface as GIG as it is connected to gig switches and doing inter vlan routing. So theres a lot of traffic going between sub interfaces.
I guess the other option is to conifgure the outside as 100mb. This is our internet link.
Any suggestions are very much appreciated.
You are correct. Because of CPU limitation, you can use the 100Mbps interface, however, I would still recommend you to use the fastest interface if you also have the additional 4 port interface module.
