server gateway address

FWSM in multi context mode and routed mode.

I'm coming from checkpoint world and there we have VRRP gateways we handout to clients/servers. Going through a config guide for FWSM I see the following.

My quiestion is which address will be handed out to the clients/servers

interface vlan 201

nameif inside

security-level 100

ip address 10.0.3.1 255.255.255.0 standby 10.0.3.2

Re: server gateway address

It would be the address assigned to the primary firewall - in your example from above 10.0.3.1. If the primary firewall fails over to the standby the address moves to the standby as well.

Thanx!

Re: server gateway address

one last question, I suppose if I'm setting up a static route I point it to the active firewall and if that goes down the adddress is moved to the standby?

Just have to make sure:-)

Yes, you would use the primary firewall IP address as the next-hop in your static route.
