Can i use the same name/IP address for LAN and statefull link ?

Below is the config, PIX accepts this config, just wanted to confirm if it'll wrk fine this way.

failover lan interface LAN-AND-STATE Ethernet2

failover link LAN-AND-STATE Ethernet2

failover interface ip LAN-AND-STATE standby

Also, if I use the same physical interface and assign 2 different set of names and different set of IP's , is this fine ..


failover lan interface LAN Ethernet2

failover link STATE Ethernet2

failover interface ip LAN standby

failover interface ip STATE standby

any comments guys ?

1. PIX supports LAN based failover and stateful failover configured on the same interface. The first configuration allows the interface to send the configuration changes and also the stateful session changes.

2. For your second question the you cannot assign two names of a same interface. So the second configuration won't work.
