Subject: [fw-wiz] PIX Failover & Other Queries

Is it possible to have to firewalls in a failover set failover as normal,
but have the failover Pix have
a different outside IP address?


What about upgrading the licence from FO to UR - would that allow it?


The best possible solution I've managed to come up with so far, is to have
two routers (or L3 switches)
- just outside each of the Pix's - configured for HSRP. If the main link
goes down, what I would like to
happen is for the other router to take over via HSRP, and for the firewall
pair to failover to the
backup. Does that sound feasible?

This is probably your best option. Whether you use OSPF and HSRP between
the routers or go to BGP to load-share across the two connections, using
routers outside the PIX's is the best way to get redundant paths with
different IP addresses.
