    Hi,
    This question is wrt traffic routing between two firewalls and improving
    efficiency.

    If one has firewall A with external ip on the same subnet as firewall B.
    How common is the practice of adding static routes on firewall A for The
    networks protected by firewall B and the other way round.

    Would this technique not lower the latency or overheads of not having the
    packets en route from firewall A to firewall B being sent to its default
    gateway to then be processed by the router and sent to firewall B. Thus the
    traffic would be direct A<-->B

    Besides being a tad messy would it be considered and at what traffic rate?

    Regards
    Eric
