Using Solar Winds Orion Netflow module I need to get a device that does netflow. I have found that the Cisco 2610 Supports Netflow. can I just place this 2610 Router in between my Cisco 3560 switch and my PIX firewall and get the Networks Netflow info to my Orion database? Does the 2610 need a card or something specific or does it have the netflow capability ust as default?

Your switch or PIX may even support it. Just go to the interface you want to track and enter "ip route-cache flow"

PIX does not support NetFlow
Switches require Enhanced IOS - big $$$
I would get something like a 1841 router to put in between the L3 switch and the PIX.
You really need two interfaces so there is a true flow.

Hi LRMoore,

So the 2610 cannot sit in between the L3 switch and the PIX? The 1841 would be the cheapest way to acheive this?

The 2610 does not have dual FastEthernet ports. It is single 10Mb only and I would not recommend it for this purpose. The 1841 has dual 10/100 ports. So does the older 2621 if you can find one of those.

I've got my fingers crossed that Cisco will enable NetFlow for ASA Firewall. They have for the really big 5580's, but not for the smaller ones.

Yeah I have held off on the ASA so far... I was kind of bummed that my 3560 GB 48 port switch that I just got earlier this year didn't have netflow.... On the lighter side It does have POE for when I actually move to VOIP... which could be down the road a bit. I'll cross my fingers as well...
Thanks
