Licensing for high availability firewall solution

Hello,

As long as you run 8.3.1 or higher you will be able to start sharing licenses between failover mates so no need to have one license per box.

Be careful: remote access VPN is not (yet) supported in multi context mode.

Multiple context mode does not support the following features:
?RIP
?OSPFv3. (OSPFv2 is supported.)
?Multicast routing
?Threat Detection
?Unified Communications
?QoS
?Remote access VPN. (Site-to-site VPN is supported.)
