Cisco Firewall :: 6500 FWSM Module Upgrade Recommendation

Aug 24, 2011

I'm looking at upgrading our FWSM modules in our 6500's. They're the WS-SVC-FWM-1 modules.
We're running on version 3.2(12) at the moment and I'm looking to jump up to 4. Any recommendations around whether I should to go to 4.1(6) or 4.0(16)? There aren't any features in particular that I would need in 4.1 but want a good stable base to sit on for 12 months until I look at this exercise all over again.

Cisco Security :: Mini Data Center Design Of 6500 With FWSM

Mar 2, 2012

I have some doubts about the best solution for the design of a mini data center.In the data center there is a 6500 with FWSM module installed, there are some vlans created, all of them in the fwsm module. For example, a back end server to communicate with a server in the front end must always pass through the firewall. My question is, all these flows passing in the firewall does not degrade the speed of communication?What is the best practice, just pass the communications with the WAN in the firewall, and the vlan communication between front end and back end is only set up in 6500?

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 Can Shutdown Vlan1 On Switch And Still Communicate With FWSM

Jun 17, 2012

It is my understanding that the FWSM for the 6500 series switches uses a 6 port Etherchannel on the backplane to communicate with the 6500 series switch.Can you shutdown vlan1 on the switch and still communicate with the FWSM? I was under the impression that you could not (although I am looking at a config with it shutdown)

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6500 - Changing VTP Mode Of A Core Switch

Oct 14, 2012

We have two 6500 core switches and one(primary) of them is running in VTP transparesnt mode and the other (secondary) one is running in VTP client mode. I would like to change the VTP mode of the second switch to transparent mode. Would it cause any issue. I guess i have to create VLANs onto the switch.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Migrating Core Switch From 3750 To 6500?

Jun 5, 2013

I am planning to migrate the core switch from cisco 3750 to Cisco catalysts 6513 switch. What could be the best approach to minimize the downtime or avoid disrupting the production. I have couple of thoughts, one method is to build the core and then replace the existing core, another option is to build the new switch as the second VTP server and once it recieves all the VTP information then disconnect the old server.

I have a requirement to connect two 3750 switch with 10G speed between two sites with 150km distance. We will lay-out our own fiber (48 core) between two sites. I just want to consult the following:
1. Could i use two core switch 6500 with single mode fiber as a transport equipment?

2. Or i need to use SDH equipment because of the distance concern? If so do i need a repeater?Could i use Cisco Metro Core ONS, which one?

3. Any other option to achieve this requirement?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6500 Configure Switch Layer 3 Port Connected To Firewall

Feb 26, 2012

I have a switch layer 6500  series connected to a firewall, the port configuration between them is  layer 2, in another words I do not configure an IP address in the Cisco  switch port to conected it in the firewall, but when a apply a policy on  firewall it lose communication with others vlans, just the vlan that is  connected between the switch and firewall works, attachment the design.  I think that is necessary to configure the connection between the  firewall and switch as layer 3 ( a port with IP address in the switch),  but I would like to know why? The switch is configured with about 10  vlan and it is a inter vlan routing, a default route is configured in  the switch where the gateway is the firewall.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst 6513 - FWSM Module Configuration

Dec 20, 2007

My company has acquired a Catalyst 6513 with a FWSM module installed on it. I have been reading lot of documentation on [URL], but still have some problems configuring the FWSM:
The 6513 has 10 SVIs configured, each of them with an IP address. These 10 SVIs are binded to 10 VLANs which I need to secure. These SVIs are used for routing all the Inter-VLAN traffic inside the switch. The documentation says it is recommended to use just one SVIs for connecting the switch to the FWSM, although you can use more than one using the command "firewall multiple-vlan-interfaces". I don't want to use this command because it seems a pretty more difficult configuration, since you have to use policy routing after using this command (or that is, at least, what documentation says).
When I try to "send" to the FWSM more than one VLAN that are configured as SVIs on the switch I get this error message:
"No more than one svi is allowed, command rejected."

If I delete the IP address of those SVIs, then I can to "send" those SVIs to the switch with no problem at all. But I need the SVIs to have IP address configured, since they are needed for routing Inter-V LAN traffic.
So, the question is: how can I route all the inter-VLAN traffic using just one SVI on the switch? Should I use the FWSM for inter-VLAN traffic routing?

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - FWSM And ACE S/W Compatibility

Aug 14, 2011

We have a pair of 6500s with Sup720 running 12.2(33)SXI3. Each has an ACE-20 (s/w A2(2.0)) and FWSM (s/w v3.2(15)). We have reached a limit on the number of rules we can configure on the FWSM, and have determined that we shall upgrade to 4.1(5), with ASDM to 6.2(2)F. A question has been raised regarding the s/w on the ACE-20 modules. Do we need to upgrade them as well?

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - FWSM Linux

Dec 20, 2012

We run a 6500 with an FWSM with multiple security contexts as well as cascading contexts with a "shared V LAN" . There is a problem with regards to Linux machines and our shared network.

For example, we have three Linux machines in production, each in three separate V LAN's. For me to communicate to these boxes from one V LAN to another I must first ping the server. If I do not ping the server it will not bring up a connection like ssh or HTTP, etc. Below is the error I get from the FWSM that hosts the Linux server, but like I said once I ping the server the error goes away. We only have this problem with Linux machines, and it is a problem for all three of them. Is the FWSM having issues understanding something with all three Linux boxes? Below is the error I get at first, when I try to SSH from one V LAN to another V LAN with the Linux machine. 

6 Dec 21 2012 16:33:54 106015 22 63000
Deny TCP (no connection) from to flags SYN ACK on interface inside.  
Below is what happens when I initiate a ping to the Linux Server and then ssh again. Notice it builds the connection with no problem after the ping. During the ping it builds the dynamic translation, and then when I ssh it builds the TCP connection. Do you know why this could be?

Cisco Firewall :: Catalyst 6509E / Migrating From FWSM To ASA Service Module (ASASM)?

Jun 6, 2013

I'm migrating from a failover pair of FWSM modules across to a failover pair of ASA Service Modules. In order to avoid a "big bang" switchover I intend to migrate subnets from one to the other over a protracted period.With that in mind, whether there is any restriction on having FWSM and ASASM modules in the same chassis? A trawl of the relevant documentation hasn't revealed anything.In this specific case it is Catalyst 6509E VSS chassis pairs with Sup-2T.

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - FWSM With Multiple Connections?

Aug 29, 2012

There is a 6500 switch with fwsm. We have extended 2 vlans from the ISP into the FWSM. Also there are atleast 10 other vlans for our internal network. We would like say half of the internal vlans to go out of the 1st ISP vlan and the remaining half from the 2nd ISP vlan. Is there a way we can do this in the FWSM?

Cisco Firewall :: Fail Context From One FWSM Over To Other 6500

Oct 23, 2012

Firstly is this the right forum to post threads about FWSM's. We have 2 FWSM's in two seperate 6500 switches. There are a number of contexts on each FWSM.I want to fail a context from one FWSM over to the other 6500 and FWSM. Can you tell me how I can do that? Do I need to do it in the admin context and do I need to do it on the admin context of each 6500?

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - Introducing ASA Into Setup Instead Of Using FWSM

Jan 3, 2013

We are thinking of introducing ASA's into our setup instead of using FWSM for our firewalls with our 6500. Currently we use multiple contexts with the FWSM, as we provide hosting services for multiple clients and want them behidn their own firewall. My question is how can we make this happen with an ASA. Since with the FWSM we use the backplane of the 6500 and SVI's for all interfaces between them. For example if we have 20 clients what will be the ideal setup for us to use with an ASA. If we can infact use mutiple contexts how can we? Is there a way we can maybe bundle all the ports in the ASA into the 6500 as a layer two trunk port and continue to use SVIs to manage all the clients.

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 Admin Context On FWSM

Dec 3, 2012

I have just joined a networks team and will be working on two fwsm versions 4.0(8) in two 6500 routers. Now the fwsms seem to be virtualised with multiple contexts. The server team want a new context setup for a group of servers behind a vlan. [code]
This context just seems to have  two Vlans and a BVI interface. What is the function of this context and why we have 2 admin contexts?
Also another important question is on which 6500 do I create the new context? Is the admin context active on one 6500 just like other contexts and will sync across or do I have to create the new context on both 6500s.

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 FWSM Vlan Interface

Jan 29, 2012

Is it possible for me to create 2 vlan interfaces on the 6500 and have them both in the same subnet?
For a specific customer requirement I would like to have a vlan interface on the 6500 as default gateway, sat in it's own vrf, and then route all traffic inbound and outbound to this vlan through the FWSM interface, preferably in the same subnet. I don't think this will be possible so just looking for confirmation either way.
As I will be running EIGRP between a pair of central 6500's and 2 remote offices it will make things much easier for me advertise the connected FWSM interfaces in to EIGRP for access in/out of all my VRF'd subnets. If I need another subnet for each VRF FWSM next hop then I'll have to reditribute a list of statics which I don't really want to do.
The reason I am not just using the FWSM as gateway is because I need to run HSRP across 3 different devices (another 6500 in a second suite), and failover FWSM will only give me 1 level of redundancy for those gateways.
