WAAS 7341 HA Deployment

I have a couple of questions here for my WAAS HA implementation.

I've attached the topology so as we can better understand.

1 - What cables should i use between Firewall ( ASA 5500 ) and WAAS on the LAN side and on the WAN side to the Switch ( WS-C6509-E ) using inline deployment so as if i put the WAAS under passthrough ( Shutdown ) mode it works ?

2 - In order to have High Availability using 2 x WAAS 7341 and inline card, i need to connect the WAAS devices like the attached file "WAAS HA Inline Cabling.vsd" ?

3 - I've configured the inlinegroup 1/0 and 1/1 of each WAAS with failover timeout 3 so how can i force it to failover through CLI ? if possible.

3 - Do i need to configure direct mode on a WAAS that is after the firewall ? We don't have WAAS on the remote sites. Check attached file "Topology.vsd"

Thanks a lot for any help.
