I just installed a PIX Failover.

Failover is working except w/ VPN. VPN client can connect to the active PIX device whether Primary or Secondary is the active one. Problem is when a Failover occurs and a VPN client is connected, the traffic is not passed through. I had to reconnect the VPN Client.

I was under the impression that VPN Stateful failover will enable the VPN client to continue working even when a Failover occurs.

I'm running PIX v 7.2(2) on both PIX.

PIX UR license on Primary

PIX FO license on Secondary

FO link & Stateful failover link shares the same port - eth 0.

question - is there an additional command to enable VPN stateful failover.

i followed this link as a guide to configure the FO
