The asa 5505 base does not allow failover but the security plus does. However does the security plus mean upgading code to support the acive/standby failover? Also since stateful failover is not supported in the 5505 base how much time can I expect to see during a failover to the standby?

It's a standby failover you can activate by buying the security plus.

Failover will occur in several seconds.

But beware:

Up to now, A/A failover is not supported for VPN. Anyway, most customers think that A/A means load-balancing, and this is untrue!

Thank you this was helpful. I guess that with the security plus license failover can work.
