Hi seegomaa,

Yes failover can work when only connecting the serial cable, but in this case there will be no stateful failover; this means that no information about the connections that have been established will be shared with the standby unit which will cause active connections to be lost if the primary unit failed.

A sample config with no stateful failover is like:


failover ip address outside

failover ip address inside

Hope this helps!

Best Regards,
