PIX failover

I have two PIX firewall(6.3) configured in failover (LAN failover)mode,now I want to disable the failover and willing to use the PIX firewalls in stand alone mode at two different site.

Is it possible?How to do that?I hope by simply disabling the LAN failover we can use the PIX firewall in stand alone mode Is in it?

Thanks and Regards,

S.Venkataraman

Re: PIX failover

It depends what license is on you failover unit , you can check it with

show version

If its failover you cannot use it as standalone.. you need upgrade it to restricted or to unrestricted license
