I have configured two PIX515E with 6.2(2) OS for failover operation. The two devices are connected with the failover cable and they seem to work properly. If I configure on the primary active FW the lan-based failover, I get the following messages:
LAN-based Failover: trying to contact peer.
LAN-based Failover: Send hello msg and start failover monitoring
LAN-based Failover Warning, received bad signature pkt
If I check the LAN operation with the
sh failover lan detail
I see on both device that they have exchanged 2 packets. After it no more messages are exchanged. On the primary I see thet it is the active and the secondary is failed. On the secondary I see that it is the secopndary and is in standby and the other device is secondary too and is in standby.
From what you are saying you are using the provide Cisco failover cable?? The cable that tells you which side is primary or not. correct? If so, you should not be using the lan failover configuration. That is for if you go thru a switch or something like that.
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
