I have a client that would like to implement 2 7603's at their internet edge. They will be connecting to 2 isp's and advertising bgp. They would like to use the 2 7603's with 48 port gigabit ethernet switch modules and a fwsm's as their entire internet edge. For some reason, they don't want to layer with Router > switch > firewall....don't ask..i've argued with them but they don't listen. The 2 routers will connect to dual 6506's w/sup720' which will act as the core. Is it possible to trunk the two routers together? im thinking i can terminate each isp link into a layer 3 port, then create a vlan where the outside interface of the fwsm will sit, I believe i can run the fwsm in multiple context mode which will allow fw to run active/active, not sure if this would be the best mode for this configuration. Since they will be taking the default route only i can probably just redistribute the default route via ospf or eigrp into fw. Does anyone have experience with 7603's w/ethernet switchmodule and dual fwsm's? I want to make sure this will work without layering multiple devices.
any ideas, thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Yes it is possible to trunk the two routers together but While i pings from outside it did not worked. If I ping the default gateway (FWSM interface) from the real server, the FWSM responds and the pings from the outside suddenly restart.
