Fail-Over Internet Gateway

Is it possible to have multiple Internet Gateways with failover ?. Ways to do it are well described in Sam Halabis' Internet Routing Architectures. But how does it work through Firewalls ? Do the most common Firewalls, e.g Checkpoint, PIX, or Watchguard, let BGP through ?

Re: Fail-Over Internet Gateway

If BGP can connect to its peers, BGP routing can occur. If you have a firewall seperating your peers, you can use static routes for routes to each other and open tcp 179 on the firewall.
