True enough i have four stubs (one per networks with firewalls) and an
another one to connect the firewalls to the router.
In fact, i want to use the router zone to make an internal routing within
the server.Three of the firewalls are connected to the physical NIC and the
last is entirely virtual.
Now i'm planning to use VLAN on the stub which connect the router and the
firewalls. In that case, i think that i will create just one VNIC on the
Am i right?
