Broadcast forwarding on ASA5510

Hi @ all,

hope you guys can help me. Did not found anything refering to this on the search.

Situation:

On a Customer Site we have a Cisco ASA5510 in routed mode, and we have 2 networks which are both routed fine.

The Customer has one device+ on lets say Network1 and a device2 on Network2.

Problem:

Device1 now needs to communicate with Device2. To initiate the communication Device1 sends out a broadcast to find other devices.

How can we tell the asa to just take that broadcast from that specific device1 and "route" it through Netzwork2. Is there any chance to get this working?

Thank you.

Andy

Hi Andy,

Firewalls in routed mode does not support broadcast traffic, although it is only supported in transparent mode, I would suggest you refer to  thsi doc:
