Interface failover on single ASA

We have 1 ASA firewall and 2 LAN switches. Can it be configured that the ASA connects in to both switches and in the event of switch failure connection to the firewall is still possible?

We have 4 interfaces on the ASA.

thanks

You cannot do this as the ASA will not allow to have the same IP subnet on 2 of its interfaces

If you need redundancy, then you require one more ASA box which can be configured for failover

Re: Interface failover on single ASA

originally I didn't think it was possible

but i found a document relating to Redundant Interfaces.

has anyone used this succesfully?

i know its a strange configuration, but it is a requirement we have on 1 of our sites

Mike,

That requires V8 code, which is still very early. I don't know that i'd be using it on a production system just yet.
