Good folks of the Network Engineering stack! I have a question that I assume most people could answer in their sleep. To better illustrate my question, I've provided a sketch of my network below.
In essence, will the Firewall shown in red below allow traffic to the layer 3 switch (192.168.1.1) ?
Do i need to add a static route on that transparent Firewall for traffic that originates outside of its specific network (192.168.1.1) ?
I imagine there are two solutions.
- I would add a route on the transparent firewall
- I would define the default gateway of the PC (192.168.1.3) as the Layer 3 switch (192.168.1.1)
Are both of these required ?
Could I get by with just one of these ?
Does anyone have any good training sites they could send me that could iron out the basics for this situation?
