Running Two ASAs.

I am testing the implementation of two ASAs. 5510 has the IPS module the 5520 has the AntiX module. I currently have the 5510 sitting in front of the 5520. The 5510 is running in transparent mode. In my lab I can't ping, http, or ftp to one of my test servers sitting behind the 5520 with the 5510 in place. If I take the 5510 out of the equation all services work. Has anybody used two ASAs in this manner? If so how did you get it working?

Thanks,

Jamie

Re: Running Two ASAs.

If you have a remote-client configuration in which you are using two or more ASAs connected on the same network to handle remote sessions, you can configure those devices to share their session load. This feature is called load balancing. Load balancing directs session traffic to the least loaded device, thus distributing the load among all devices. It makes efficient use of system resources and provides high availability.

To implement load balancing, group together logically two or more devices on the same subnet into a virtual cluster
