Have incoming traffic fail-over between several internal servers

I want to know if I can do the following:

I have two servers that both are web/application servers. I have a ASA 5505 infront of them. I know I can create statis NATs and then security rules to allow ports to forward incoming traffic to them.

What I want to know is if I can somehow create them that they either go to one server first and it it does nto respond then to the second server or if I can somehow round-robin/hunt group the incoming traffic?

You can't do that with the ASA 5505.  It sounds like this is something you should implement on the servers themselves like clustering.  However, if your external DNS provider supports round robin, that may be an option to investigate.

Thanks, I thought so after reading the documentation but I wanted to be sure.
