PIX config

Hi;

I'm new to the PIX firewall and I'm looking to see if a project is possible. I have 1 PIX and 3 ISP's that need to be connected for both redundancy and network protection. I need to know if my configuration is possible and if so some info as to wher ei can find some direction to resolving my project. The PIX has a restricted license but that can be changed if needs be. Any info in this matter would be greatly appreciated

Re: PIX config

cool. you can use BGP and a new feature called Optimised Edge Routing... OER can be used to intelligently poll the latency, hop counts, link load etc and automatically divert traffic to the best possible link... Search for OER on the CCO and you can find materials about that...

Hope this helps.. mark the post as solved, which can help others. rate replies if found useful.

Re: PIX config

Hello

Are the routers connecting to the PIX outside or to different DMZ interfaces? Basically PIX can have only one default route in it. It cannot handle load sharing or failback between ISP's. You have to do all the backup routing on the routers.

HOpe this helps. all the best...

Re: PIX config

the initial plan would hav been to use a layer 2 switch b/t the ISP and the PIX, was trying to avoid BGP but thanks for the info
