    Hello NG,

    I have Cat6500 with sup 720 and that is a PE for MPLS network (it
    doesn't have customer's on it - it connects VPNs to internet). Now the
    idea is to put FWSM in with multiple contexts to give users firewall
    that would be manageable by themselves (it's not a problem).

    The problem here is what is the best way to transport data from MPLS
    VPN's to VLANs? Anyone doing something like that?

    I don't know much about the FWSM or the Cat6500 but should be no problem as
    the CE-PE or Internet-PE in your case doesn't use MPLS as it's transport but
    pure IP, On a PE router you would just create sub interfaces on the
    Fast/Giga interface using DotQ/ISL encapsulation and apply the VRF their.
    This is how we do it with seperate layer2 and 3 devices so one Gig-Ethernet
    can feed multipe CE's.
