I would like to do a "poor man's" failover by mapping an External IP Address to 2 different internal ip addresses using a metric to determine which one to go to.  Is this possible or is there another way to acomplish this?

No, you cannot do this on the PIX.  The closest thing to this would be for you to use two separate ports (TCP or UDP) going from the same external IP address to two different internal addresses based on which port the traffic was originally sent to.

Well ok thanks I figured that.  I am going to be getting a loadbalancer in the near future I was just wanting a suplement until I purchase it.
