Failover Config Question

I have PIX 515E-UR and PIX 515E-FO. The two are connected via failover cable.

To configure the failover between the 2 PIX how many interfaces do I need? Both have 2 ethernet port with parallel connection to the private and public networks. I noticed in most config documents in cisco.com that I need to configure a third interface for the stateful configuration. Is this true? or I can only work with Active and Standby state?

Can somebody give me a sample config just a few lines where I would configure the interfaces and the failover.

thanks.

Re: Failover Config Question

If you want stateful failover, you need to dedicate an interface on each pix, and put them on the same hub/switch (you cannot interconnect them with a crossover cable)

has all you would ever need to know on it.

We cannot really give a sample config until you decide if dedicating interfaces to stateful failover is worth it to you
