data routing / layer 3 switch to asa

Hi,

I have two networks in my office which do not touch.  I need to connect them now.

One is a simple mpls -> asa (with no outside line)
The Other one has a a layer 3 switch -> asa --> router

Can anybody explain, or point me in the right direction on what to do if i connect my layer 3 switch to the asa via cable?

Could you elaborate a bit?

At the moment you have one or two ASA's?
Are the two networks in one office or is the second network at a remote location (through the mpls)?

Just trying to get the whole picture here.

This is too vague, can you be more specific in describing your network topology and your problem?

sorry about that

Network A
ds3 router - ASA 5505 -- Catalyst 4507

Network B

MPLS router - ASA 5500 --- Cisco Catalyst WS-C2950T-48 (this network does not have a data line yet)

at the moment the two networks dont talk.  If i had a data line on the MPLS network i would just set up a vpn-vpn line between the two asa, but since i dont have that option i was thinking of running a network cable from the catalyst 4507, since it is a level 3 switch to the ASA on the mpls network and route data from network A to network B that way.

Just dont know how to set it up.

You can run a cable between the 2 switches.
The port on the 4507 will have to be configured for the 2950s subnet

vburshteynAuthor Commented:
any chance you can provide more info?

How do i route the data for that subnet from the 4507?

topdavisCommented:
On the 4507 create a VLAN that is the same as the one on the 2950.

On the ports you will be using to connect the 4507 to the 2950, you need to configure them in trunking mode.

Then you can use the 4507 to do the routing of information between the vlans on the 4507 and the 2950.

If you provide the configurations of the 4507 and the 2950, I am sure I or any of the other contributors can script it out for you.

vburshteynAuthor Commented:
so if the one on 2950 is set for general vlan 1, just turn all the ports to say vlan 2.. turn one port on 4507 into vlan 2 and trunk em together.  

then route date between 2 vlans

topdavisCommented:
No.  You don't necessarily have to change vlans.  The subnet of the vlans matter so just moving the ports on the 2950 to vlan 2 and connecting the switches may not do any good.  If you provide the existing configurations it will be much easier to tell exactly what you need to do.

ok so the 2950 has the generic config, there is nothing on it so its the default config other then
Switch IP 10.59.1.4 ---> connected to ASA 10.59.1.1


the 4507 is
For this purpose i created VLAN 10 and assigned FA 3/35 to it
i gave vlan 10 ip of 10.59.1.2


So what i need to figure out is how do i get the 4507 to see a device 205.132.168.191 255.255.255.255  that i can get from the 2950.  

Hope this makes sense!

Hi vburshteyn,

Could you make it more clear?

Do you have to Internet lines and you want to activate them both over the network with the 4507?

0
 
vburshteynAuthor Commented:
ok so i handed this by creating a new vlan on both of the devices and ran a cable between the both.  Then i modified the routing tables to handle.
