Load balancing across two ASA 5520

Hi to everybody. Yesterday i've posted question about load balancing across 2 pix 525 firewalls.

Question was this:

***I'm creating network solution that ***will have two Pix 525 firewalls ***connected to two different ISPs. For ***performance reasons i would like that ***my clients connect to Internet ***through both firewalls in round robin ***fashion. What are my possibilities?

***

***I want to create something like ***Gateway load balancing protocol ***(GLBP) on 2800 series of router. I ***don't know and can't find out if Pix ***supports GLBP. If not, are any ***similiar solution supported?

***

***

I've recieved several answers and the answers were great.

Can anyone see my post from yesterday here on forum and check if the answers from that post are correct if I want to use ASA 5520 instead of Pix 525 ?

Any help would be great

Hi

The active/active concept which is very much similar to GLBP in routers may help you out here..

Re: Load balancing across two ASA 5520

Hi

Yes, csico ASA 5520 can be used in place of PIX 525 for active/active load balancing. ASA gives you option to have IPS module as well, where as PIX doesn`t.

the active/active failover mechanism works the same way in ASA also and same commands work.

kindly update for further queries.
