Connecting two networks on L3 switches through firewall

Hi, 

 

I'm having trouble connecting a management network to talk to a test network. 

I have two L3 switches. 

Management network is on SW1 as 10.20.20.X for servers (vlan 20) and 10.20.98.X for workstations (vlan 98).

Test network is on SW2 as 10.20.21.X (vlan 21).

I have a firewall in between so that traffic can pass from the management side to the test network but I don't want the test network to access management side.  

I feel I have the routes in place to allow traffic but the management side isn't able to ping the test side.  

Any advise on how to test/set up connections would be appreciated.

What Firewall is this? if you like to reach  

 

From 10.20.20.X  to  10.20.98.X

From  0.20.98.X to 10.20.20.X

 

Do you FW interface part of this network ?

 

if not you need routing towards FW Layer 3 interface ,  from FW you need to route back to their respected Gateways.,

 

you need also ACL to allow bi-directional allow list both subnet can talk to each other.

 

high level looks like below ( please clarify)

 

10.20.20.X ----- FW------ 10.20.98.X
