Course Description:

The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Firewall Services Module (FWSM) provides centralized firewall services under distributed control, allowing firewall services to be easily provisioned for deploying and scaling n-tier applications.

In this course, you will learn how to design effective firewall services solutions with the Cisco Catalyst 6500. You will learn how to implement and deploy the FWSM, how to streamline the provisioning of multiple firewall contexts, and how to deploy the FWSM in high-availability configuration.

After you complete this course, you will be able to:

Describe the basic installation and configuration procedures for configuring the FWSM
Describe the purpose and use of Network Address Translation (NAT) and Port Address Translation (PAT)
Describe the proper mode for attaching the FWSM to the network
Configure routed and transparent modes
Specify the traffic which is allowed to transit the FWSM
Configure static routes
Configure Remote Management
Configure Advanced NAT functions
Configure AAA services
Configure deep packet inspection
Provision and manage multiple contexts in order to provide centralized services under distributed control
Configure high-availability firewall services using two FWSMs
