Config Reference for Dual PIX/Dual Border Routers/Dual ISP's

Is there any references on CCO for configuring Dual PIX's and Dual Border Routers to connect to 2 different ISP's using either BGP or Statics?

I have searched and cannot seem to find it. There is very good info for BGP Multihoming and PIX Failover, but nothing that covers a fully redundant topology from the ISP, to the Border Routers, to the PIX's, and finally down to HSRP on the Inside Routers.

Thanks in advance!

Your best option would probably be to set up BGP between the 2 ISPs. This is a good link to start researching on BGP:

Here's a good starting point for setting up HSRP

I don't have a reference for CCO, but Chapter 8 of my book "High Availability Networking with Cisco" walks through a number of scenarios for redundant connectivity to ISPs, and fully redundant routing through firewalls is covered in Chapter 9 (but I do not provide PIX configurations, only router configurations).

Generally, there are too many nitty gritty details to work out to even attempt to claim that a single configuration will fit all requirements. For example, you always have to trade off between load sharing, availability, and complexity when implementing redundancy.

You can take a look at the listings from my book on my web site, and you will probably find the white paper there on firewall redundancy of interest.

Good luck and have fun!
