  1. Great explanation my friend. Thank you for making this tutorial very clear and concise.



  2. In the paragraph at the end, just wondering where you got the 1024 from for the sustained bits per interval?

    R1)#show policy-map interface Fa0/0 | include bc
          shape (average) cir 256000, bc 1024, be 0

One router is active for one VLAN and another router is active for another VLAN is HSRP. There are two different firewalls for two different purposes.
