pix in transparent mode

hi group:

Recently I deployed pix running 7.0 transparent mode in our network.

If I put pix between switches with one vlan,everything is fine.If I put pix

between switches with trunking enabled,then all vlan traffic is dropped by pix.Does pix support 802.1q when in transparent mode?Thanks for comments.

Re: pix in transparent mode


I am trying to deploy the ASA in transparent mode and it is giving me some trouble. Could you please send me a sample config if you have one.

Re: pix in transparent mode

access lists are not being hit when I check the sh access list. Any ideas at all? Seems like I am doing something very stupid. I just can't see what it is though.
