Could I configure and connect 3 Dell switches to an ASA-5525 Firewall which has got 8 interfaces
05-29-2012 10:54 AM
Yes. Are the Dell switches Layer 2 only or Multi Layer?

Yes, They are Layer 3 switches

You sure could... a better question might be... what is the application?

Technically, I think could be possible. You have the tools available for the lab, try it and let us know. The questions should be, did you try it, what you find that doesnt allow you to or you dont have a clue how to do it? Did you configure subinterfaces in your inside? Are those switches in different vlans? Because the way you ask the question its like you never try it or you simple want a YES/NO response.

We are planning to order a Cisco ASA Firewall. Before ordering, I wanted to confirm whether it works . Thank you for your answers

The simple answer is yes, however, without the details of what you are trying to accomplish with these 3 switches, it's hard to give you the necessitites you may need prior to making your decision.
I'm going to assume these 3 swtiches host 3 different areas within your data environment (Inside, Outside, and DMZ)? If this is the case, all is well in the world.

Just a question, how could you answer his question with a simple yes without knowing the details. Just curious?
