ASA / Pix OS7 in Transparent Mode.
Posted on 2007-03-22
I was wondering if anyone can help me with the following. I have Cisco asa 5520 firewall and would like to configure it as a transparent firewall (never done this before but have setup pix firewalls in routed mode). I want to firewall 2 servers. Therefore I was thinking that I would buy a new switch plug the servers into the new switch, 1 leg of the firewall into the new switch and 1 leg of the firewall into the old switch to link them together. Does anyone see any problems with this? The reason for this is I can't change the IP address of the servers but they need to be behind a firewall for security reasons.
In addition if anyone has any sample configs of an asa or pix os7 in transparent mode please could you post it?
