Virtual Wire - Two Subinterface with seperate Tag Paired

L1 Bithead
hi..I'm working on a virtual-wire solution where the firewall is connecting to single switch fabric, so the ingress and egress is between same firewall and switch.


Is it possible to create a virtual wire pair with different sub-interface tags ?


eg: If ingress to firewall from switch is on vlan 10 and egress from firewall to switch is on vlan 20, would the firewall remap the packets from 10 and 20 and vice-versa


is this acceptable configuration with virtual wire ? or should the pair of sub-interface have SAME TAGS ?

So the virtual wire is a 'bump' in the wire, meaning both sides should be the same. Not sure why you would want that config since it sounds like more of a router than a virtual wire.


Hope that helps.

i had the same understanding but i wanted to double check..thanks for quick reply
