Dual WAN, PIX 515E

Answered Question
Jan 26th, 2009

Hello all,

I just have a general question.

I do not have a lot of experience with PIX firewalls. I have a PIX 515E running IOS 7.1 with an expansion NIC card (inf2).

I also have two WAN connections, I'll just call them Cable and DSL for simplicity.

I want the Cable connection to be primary and have DSL be there for redundancy. So if at any point the Cable connection goes down, it will automatically fail-over to the DSL side.

Could someone maybe post a how-to or best-practices for what I'm wanting to do?

Any personal tips and/or experiences would also be greatly appreciated. I've never set this up before, but I'd like to do some reading up before I dive in.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.


I have this problem too.
