Assume that inbound interface of FW1 side cable unplugged. In this scenario the probes are still up. Probes cannot detect this situation and fail over doesn't take place. As you can see it is impossible to detect cable tear down unless we have an IP address from different vlan. I have an idea about to solve this issue, I need to create a new vlan (for instance vlan 200) on the ACE_INSIDE. We will insert a static route on ACE_OUTSIDE. That static route will try to access vlan 200 via FW1 outside interface. Then we will be sure when the FW1 fails. Of course vice versa will be valid. We can use similar configuration for the FW0 too. According to the configuration that I have attached and my solution, can you give me a configuration example or do you have a better way to accomplish this task. I will be waiting for your suggestion or solution as soon as possible. I have little time to solve this. Thanks in advance.
Note: Topology and all necessary configs are attached.
Re: ACE - Probe suggestion for CheckPoint Firewall ?
Thank you for your answer. They are active/active. But the checkpoints we are talking are not using cluster XL for failover. They are using third party (ACE) for the fail over also. So ACE has to know about firewalls with probe. They don't have VIP IPs.
