Do I need IOS firewall feature set on Catalyst 6500 for FW blade?

Hi all,

If I install a FW blade in Cat6500, should I need to have the IOS firewall feature set on Cat6500 itself?

Thanks and Regards,

mak

Nope.

The FWSM uses it's own OS based on PIX OS. While it uses SVIs configured in the MSFC, it otherwise runs autonomously from the Sup and MSFC, even in Native mode.

Let me know if this helps by rating the post.
