This chapter covered the different routing protocols supported by Cisco ASA. Configuration examples included information on how to add a static route to configure dynamic routing protocols such as OSPF and RIP. Detailed sample configurations were provided, as well as tips on how to troubleshoot common problems when deploying these dynamic routing protocols.
Cisco ASA also supports IP multicast routing protocols. IGMP versions 1 and 2 are supported, as well as PIM-SM. PIM-SM allows Cisco ASA to have direct participation in the creation of a multicast tree. This technique enhances the multicast support for IGMP forwarding and provides an alternate to multicast transparent mode operations. At the end of the chapter, deployment scenarios were added to enhance the level of learning.
