    Hi all,

    excuse me at first if i don't explain this properly, i'll try...
    I have one internet link, and two ASA5505's, and two "networks" that need
    access from and to internet.
    The main idea is that 1st 5505 would be configured with 3 interfaces -
    In,Out, DMZ.
    Through DMZ i would forward all traffic from one public ip (exmpl. x.x.x.5)
    to 2nd 5505. Basically DMZ on 1st 5505 would be connected to Out interface
    on 2nd 5505, and not filtering anything.
    Out interf. on 1st 5505 would have other pub ip (exmpl. x.x.x.4).
    Behind both 5505's i have different subnets that requiers some access from
    and to the internet.

    q1: Would that kind of wiring and connecting work?

    q2: if that would work, is it possible to configure / limit speed/bandwidth
    for DMZ "link"?

    q3: i guess when 2nd 5505 initiate IPsec tunnel (site-to-site) that the 1st
    one wouldn't be aware of that (licence issues?) ?

    q4: all services that needs to be accessible from the internet behind 2nd
    5505 would be accessible if configured only on 2nd 5505 ?

    that's it so far, i hope i wouln't bother you anymore.

    Tnx in advance & regards,

  2. Yes, I believe so. But I don't understand why you need the second 5505.
    You can set the port speed to 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps.
    Yes, the first 5505 is just passing the traffic.
    Yes, if the first one is configured for full access.

    second 5505 is needed for other "project" and "routing + VPN's"
    Can i for example from 10Mbps internet link "give" only 2 Mbps to 2nd 5505?
    Full access, you mean that full access is enabled on DMZ "port" only. And
    other "inside" ports are using firewall rules configured for them only.?

    Traffic shaping must be applied to all outgoing traffic on a physical
    interface or in the case of the ASA 5505, on a VLAN. You cannot
    configure traffic shaping for specific types of traffic.
