RE: FWSM 6509 firewall module info posted 03/25/2004
[Chronological Index] [Thread Index] [Top] [Date Prev][Date Next] [Thread Prev][Thread Next]


Hello-

I would recommend asking your local Cisco SE. There are some decent docs
but they are "EFT" and "Cisco Confidential". Get the FWSM 1.3
Installation guide. The 1.3 guide covers configuring and maintaining
contexts and resource control. If you have the FWSM's, you probably have
a good reason to request the updated info.

Thanks,

K

Loizos, 
Good documentation?  I would describe them as fair. 
I am aware of only one set of FWSM documents which I'm sure you have
seen. 
Does anyone know of any additional documentation?

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/mod_icn/fwsm
/fwsm_1_1/fwsm112/fwsm112.pdf
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/mod_icn/fwsm
/fwsm_1_1/fwsm112/bascfg.pdf
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/mod_icn/fwsm
/fwsm_1_1/fwsm112/advcfg.pdf

In FWSM 1.1(2) I was informed by TAC to ignore the  *'firewall 
multiple-vlan-interfaces' *command.*
*This will be used in a future release.
