PIX 6.2 Standby (Failed) message
Posted on 2003-02-24
Please find show failover output. I am being shown standby (failed). what does it mean?
Pix-Admin1(config)# sh fail
Cable status: Normal
Reconnect timeout 0:00:00
Poll frequency 15 seconds
This host: Secondary - Active
Active time: 2910 (sec)
Interface statefailover (126.96.36.199): Normal (Waiting)
Other host: Primary - Standby (Failed)
Active time: 238050 (sec)
Interface statefailover (188.8.131.52): Normal
Users can access the inernet, as one of the firewalls is up. what could be wrong with the second one?
I can successfully ping the standby unit.
Second questios is, how do I analyse traffic using fixup commands. I have the follwoing commands configured on the PIX:
fixup protocol ftp 21
fixup protocol http 80
fixup protocol h323 h225 1720
fixup protocol h323 ras 1718-1719
fixup protocol ils 389
fixup protocol rsh 514
fixup protocol rtsp 554
fixup protocol smtp 25
fixup protocol sqlnet 1521
fixup protocol sip 5060
fixup protocol skinny 2000
How do I use them to analyze traffic or how do I know what is teh advantage of having these commands?
