Firewall

Please can we do a failover between a Cisco PIX 525 FW as Primary Link ( 1000mb Fibre) and a Cisco PIX 515 FW ( 100 mb copper) as a secondary link.?

These 2 are connected to a switch not between each other so a LAN based failover

Thanks

Re: Firewall

First of all for lan based failover, the pix models should be identical.

Infact, both PIX Firewall units must have the same model number, have the same amount of RAM, Flash memory, number and type of interfaces, and be running the same software version.

Hope that answers your question.

Re: Firewall

My understanding is that PIX's support failover, but I've never tried it so I can't speak about the details. The Security/Firewalling forum may be a better place to ask.
