Hi Mathew,

The Firewall Services Module can be used in a variety of topologies depending on the needs of your network. For example, in a data center you may want to provide access control or segregate your security domains. The security domain can be a collection of servers with the same security level. Within that domain, multiple subnets or server farms can exist.

Check out the below link for basic intial configuration of FWSM
