Re: Cisco VPN client 3.5.1 winXP with PIX 525 with failover
I guess it should be expected that when the tunnel endpoint goes down, VPN connectivity will be lost. If you create a new connection entry on a VPN client, you are required to provide the IP address of the remote endpoint. When the remote endpoint is down, ie the active PIX in the failover pair goes down, the VPN connectivity is lost and you will be required to open a new session to the failover PIX (using it's IP). However, considering that failover is not expected to happen often, this should be rarely necessary. Another thing that you might try is to use the 'enable backup server' option on the VPN client. However even here, you will need to reconnect if the PIX failover took place while you were connected.
