Firewall or accesslists?

Unanswered Question

Hello,


We have about 4 smaller networks (less then 250 nodes per VLAN) coming together in a 4006 switch. We allow or deny access using extended accesslists in the 4006 switch. Lately the accesslists have been growing and the administration is getting more and more.

I've been thinking about replacing the accesslists in the 4006 switch with a firewall where the different VLANs will be terminated.

Can somebody give me som recommendations? Is there some kind of rule of thumb for this kind of thing? Like having x amount of VLANs then a firewall should be implemented?


Thanks in advance,

Rutger

logical interface can be created on pix to connecting vlans, however, pix can't be used to route traffic between vlans.
