    I wonder if someone can help me come up with a solution that I have been trying to figure out for a while now. In a few days time I am going to have access to my own dedicated full rack in a datacenter near me. I currently have collocated servers but I do not manage any of the routing/IP address/VLAN, that is all done by another company that owns a number of racks in the same datacenter.

    Basically my goal when I have the rack is to have multiple VLANs, routed by a 2621 series router with each individual VLAN is firewalled by a PIX 515. I also have a 2950 for switching.

    I have set up a few lab scenarios in my workshop and have been able to set up the router and switch to route between the VLANs and understand and can program this as I require.

    Where I am stuck now is how to now ‘add’ the PIX to the scenario. Does it come before the router? Does it come between the router and the switch? My guess is that the hardware is arranged in the following order,


    If this is correct how do I need program the PIX to firewall each individual VLAN?

    I understand that this is a big question without a yes/no answer. If anyone can help point me in the right direction to solving this situation it would be most appreciated. My Cisco, Networking and IP addressing knowledge is good so feel free to post any configs or anything else that will make the question easier to answer,

    Many thanks
