interface vlan

I have a PIX 525 and ASA5510 with version 8.0 ... with unrestricted license.

when i try to create interface vlan on any of the device, i have no option to do this.


configure mode commands/options: Ethernet IEEE 802.3 Redundant Redundant Interface <cr>

Anything i need to enable this feature?

Thank you gerard


Re: interface vlan

To create virtual interface you have to do it with subinterfaces, in other words if you are trying comeup with more logical interfaces you have to use 802.1q trunk to whicever switch you are using and create your L2 vlans in the switch pertaining to each subinterface you create in the firewall and map your switchports accordinly to proper vlans.

Re: interface vlan

That is from an ASA5505 - vlan interfaces on the ASA series is only possible on the 5505. as a previous poster said, you need to use subinterfaces if you want more than the number of physical interfaces.
