I woul like to know if I can configure in a Firepower 2140 in Failover (active/standby or active/active) Policy-Based Routing (PBR). I would like to force the wireless traffic through internet using one of our ISP and the LAN traffic through the other ISP.

This should be possible assuming you can identify each type of traffic for example by their subnets. The PBR config needs to be done through FlexConfig.

Good morning

I can identify the traffic by the subnet. When you mean the config needs to be done through FlexConfig, can you explain me more about this. I don't understand exactly what is FlexConfig, it's only available after version 6.2.2?

Thanks a lot. Huge fan! :D

FlexConfig is a way to insert ASA-type command on FTD device for features that are not yet supported on the GUI. PBR is one of the features. FlexConfig is available on 6.2. You can look at some examples under the Device/FlexConfig menu.

we have cnfigured two Firepower with Active/Standbay HA. and we have configured a EBGP session with two ISP, we have our own Public IP adresses. we have received the route table from the first ISP and a default route from the second. the problem that we have now is a asymetric routing, when a request came from the second ISP the Firepower will reply using the route table from the first ISP and we have an asymetric routing and the traffic is blocked.
The ISP recommand to use the AS-Path Prepending, but we can not find this option on the Firepower, how to configure the AS-Path Prepending in Firepower?
thank you in advance.
