That's what I figured, but it's not working for me... If I use the MSFC, everything works fine. once I switch to an external router, I have really sporadic outbound access from behind the fwsm contexts.
From what I understood, the msfc and fwsm coordinate the ingress traffic so that it lands on the appropriate virtual context. It certainly seems like that's what's happening, but I'm looking for others who have firsthand experience with this and can share in my frustration .
Here is the configuration on the switch:
interface GigabitEthernet4/47 description To xxx router, inside interface (Internet router) switchport switchport access vlan 2 switchport mode access logging event link-status speed 100 duplex full end
Thanks. For now, I'm using the MSFC, but will need to use an external router in the next few months due to needing to use subinterfaces as well as tying into other networks that I don't want the 6500 connected to.
