ASA Failover

Can I know what is the difference between commands "Failover Lan" and "Failover Link". Which one enables stateful failover

Re: ASA Failover

"failover lan" is used to configure the basic failover configuration sync. "failover link" is for the stateful 'link' which exchanges state table info lile connections, etc.   - Magnus

Re: ASA Failover

Hello,

The "failover LAN" command is used to specify the link used for failover

purposes while "failover link" command is used for specifying the link that

is used to exchange connection state information.

Re: ASA Failover

Hello,

So which one should be used? Or if I want to enable statefull failover so that when my Primary firewall goes down, all the connection information should be passed to secondary set and secondary to act as active one. For this do  I need to enable both Lan failover as well as link faiolver?

Or is it if failover link only helps in sharing connection information to secondary firewall?
