I am reviewing two 6500 with FWSM's running in Active/Standby. They are connected to two edge routers running BGP with the cores switces as neighbors.
There are static routes from the cores to the FWSM for each firewalled subnet. I wondered why it was not setup with a routing protocol.
There are two contexts, so the only available protocol is BGP.
I thought this was an option until i read.......
You can only configure one BGP neighbor, even in multiple context mode.
One neighbor? So all traffic will come thoughh one edge router?
What if my neighbor goes down?
How can I get good traffic flow and HA without static routes?
