Our network is going to be redesigned. We have about 50 employees with remote agents using 501.
Our new design will be something like:
INTERNET -- ROUTER -- PIX -- L3 SWITCH -- LAN
My main problem is that there is another router connected to the L3 SWITCH (2651XM). I need to determine when the internet router is down so my data is sent through the 2651XM automatically (using something like HSRP or GLBP if possible). I thought about using a routing protocol but I am not aware that a Pix runs EIGRP (which is what we are currently running) but OSPF.
Here are my questions:
1. Would changing the routing protocol be worth the headache and get the work done?
2. Would you recommend another Pix, ASA or just keeping the one I have?
I would like to know whether changing my existing Pix will benefit my company.
Thanks a lot in advanced.
