Cisco SG300 - Trunk or Access for Firewall Port?

For a Cisco SG300 switch, should the switch port that plugs into the firewall be a trunk port or an access port? The firewall is an ASA-5505. There will be two VLANs on the SG300 - management vlan and vlan 10.

Thank you

Hi Lance,

If you want to use the ASA for routing then yes, you could create a trunk between the SG300 and ASA and do it like this.

You can also use the SG300 for routing (if it supports this). Create a default route on the SG300 that points to the ASA so it knows where to forward unknown traffic to.


Thank you!
