HSRP heartbeat between failover pair

Hi,

I have 2 ASA 5520 working in a statefull Active/Failover mode connected to two different routers which are working in HSRP. Now the routers are always taking a Active Active state as the HSRP heartbeats and communications are getting blocked by the ASA in between the failover pair.

Is there a solution to achieve this other than introducing a switching layer between the firewall bundle and the router bundle.

Pls help & suggest.

Regards,

Indrajit

Re: HSRP heartbeat between failover pair

Your design does not sound right to me. Not sure why you would like to do this.

For HSRP implementation, there should be a layer 2 link between two routers. In general, it is realized by connecting both routers to a switch.

By the way, HSRP packet is sent to destination IP multicast address 224.0.0.2 on User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port 1985.

Re: HSRP heartbeat between failover pair

yes i know that it doesnt work this way but was looking for a work around in any as there needs to be an extra investment just to connect the firewalls to the HSRP routers. Thanks anyways for your time.
