Re: PIX 515 failover?

Correct. you need a UR and FO licensed pair. This is an active-passive cluster - there is no loadbalancing between the units. The serial cable is the older, but still supported method. To maintain the highly level of statefulness of failover, you can now dedicate an ethernet interface on each unit for stateful failover. The use of ethernet for stateful failover also allows you to have more physical distance between the units.

Hi,

The 515 is End of Sales. It has been replaced by the 515E model. More information on the ordering / part numbers details can be found on the below url;
