Is it possible to have context in transperant mode and routed mode. Means if i need three context then 2 of them is in routed mode and one of them is in transperant mode. If yes then how, i can 't find this info in cisco website.???
I am havin 5585-x and asa version 8.4
Solved! Go to Solution.
It is a system level configuration and not context level, it can only be applied to the complete box, rather than contexts.
thnx Varun, but does that means that since my system configuration says that firewall is in routed mode than all context created will be in routed mode!!!????
No way to have mix mode!!!
If I remember correctly, the possiblity to have transparent and routed firewall in multiple context mode is coming in the future software realease.
Thats right, all the contexts can either be in routed mode or transparent mode, they cannot be mixed:
This should clear it out for you.
I found some more info see at this document
In 8.4(1) and earlier in In multiple context mode, you can use only one firewall mode for all contexts. You must set the mode in the system configuration. This command also appears in each context configuration for informational purposes only; you cannot enter this command in a context.
In 8.5(1) and later in multiple context mode, you can set this command per context.
When you change modes, the ASA clears the configuration because many commands are not supported for both modes. If you already have a populated configuration, be sure to back up your configuration before changing the mode; you can use this backup for reference when creating your new configuration.
If you download a text configuration to the ASA that changes the mode with the firewall transparent command, be sure to put the command at the top of the configuration; the ASA changes the mode as soon as it reads the command and then continues reading the configuration you downloaded. If the command is later in the configuration, the ASA clears all the preceding
Its the ASA-SM module that has it, all the 8.5 versions are only for ASA-SM modules which have now replaced the FWSM module.
