FWG + L3 router doing inter-VLAN routing
I've been using Firewall Gold for a while on a flat network. Now, looking for segment it with a layer 3 switch (router).
Need some help with the setup below:
FWG <--> L3 router <--> client devices
The L3 router has multiple VLANs defined and ideally, would be doing inter-VLAN routing.
How should the router and FWG be setup so that the FWG acts as DHCP and DNS server for each VLAN but the L3 router does inter-VLAN routing and ACLs? Is this scenario possible? Or does the L3 router have to be in L2 switch mode in order to accomplish this?
I wanted to offload some load from the FWG and have the switch take care of inter-VLAN routing. At the same time, still use the FWG's security features to control and monitor traffic.
Looks like in this case though, that the switch will have to function has a managed switch only (not a router), and the FWG will perform inter-VLAN routing.
