PIX Failover using serial cable

I have problems setting up 2 pix for failover.

The outside interface show normal<waiting> when the serial cable is connected and remains in this state.

Also when I connect the cable for the secondary pix outside interface, i loose internet connectivity. That is the primary stops passing traffic. When i unplug the interface to the primary, traffic starts again.

My pix version is 6.3(5) both running Unrestricted Licence.

Any ideas

Re: PIX Failover using serial cable

Hi ,

When the pix are configured in failover,each interface exchange the hello packets with its peer interface on other pix.If they do not receive the hello packet they move to waiting state.

Make sure that both the pix can talk to each other on all the interface in failover.

Serail cable is fixed properly on both the sides.

Regards,

Tanveer
