I have got the job of setting up two Nokia IP260s in a high availability (either active-passive or active-active), my main experience is with Checkpoint only (on SPLAT/Windows). I have looked through some docs on setting up IPSO for HA but it's not that clear. I want someone with experience of doing this to do write a description of the process of setting this up (the easiest and simplest way possible to achieve HA and get CP up and running). Also:
Am I right in thinking IPSO is solely responsible for the HA? and that the only config CP needs is to allow multicast between the devices?
Whats the process of installing CP on them?
Can the connections between the devices be a crossover cable? (the sync network)
thanks in advance
