Pix ver.6.2.1 site-2-site failover without serial cable

Hi Guys,

Does anyone knows how to configure the Pix HA site-2-site failover without the Serial cable. I read this is a new feature in 6.2.1 but I can't find any documentation on how to configure it.

Thanks

Gonzalo

Re: Pix ver.6.2.1 site-2-site failover without serial cable

In 6.2(1) you can do LAN-based failover, but it'll only span between sites if you have an ethernet subnet between your sites. The feature was built to overcome the 6 feet length limitation of the serial cable - I think it'll be put to use mostly by people who place their machines on opposite sides of the same datacenter.

You can read up on:

In step 13 you'll see the commands that are specifically related to LAN based failover.

Good luck.

Frans
