ASA Etherchannel load balancing

Hi,

I have a client with a SonicWall who needs more bandwidth between his core switch and the firewall.

Before I recommend he replace the Sonicwall (that apparently cannot do Etherchannel or any load balancing from the inside network), I'd like to confirm:

Which lowest model ASA supports Etherchannel load balancing ?

Thanks.

HI!

5505 does not support etherchannel.

Everything else (5510+ ) running 8.4.1 and newer should run it:

FWSM is already running etherchannel (6 * Gig port) to cat6k. This is not configurable.

Maybe I misunderstood the question?

regards,

Marcin

Re: ASA Etherchannel load balancing

could I do the load balancing / etherchannel with a Cisco 6500 and the Firwall Services Module ?
