Multiple context + Dynamic Routing


I need to know about the packet flow between the contexts and through the asa when multiple context is enabled.

> ASA version used : 9.1

> Multiple context

> Two context used

We are going to setup a new environment in which ASa will be used as the internal firewall.

Multiple context + Dynamic Routing

Packets will not flow in between the contexts on the ASA. Think of them as two separate firewalls....because they are.

Multiple context + Dynamic Routing

Hello Colin,

If Packets will not flow in between the two contexts, then how the dynamic routing will be used.

Will dynamic routing work on a single context only.

If yes, then how will the inter context (with shared interface) communication work.

Can you please share a link taht clarifies this and give an explanation on this also please.

Multiple context + Dynamic Routing

Dynamic routing is used just like any other two routers. An interface on each ASA (shared interface also works) will need to be in a common subnet and an IGP configured. They will then peer and share routes.
