Cisco ASA adding another interface

Hi Guys

I have two ISPS that come into the building and I have a Cisco ASA 5510 with two spare interfaces. One of those interfaces is connected to one of my ISPS, can i setup one of the other interfaces to use the new ISP?

And do I have to make sure the new ISP router is in bridged mode?

Thanks a million

Yes, you can. Here's an article walking you through the process: http://itcurry4all.blogspot.com/2013/04/cisco-asa-5510-with-dual-isp-redundancy.html

This method would help you fail over to your secondary ISP if primary ISP interface physically goes down .

the 255.255.255.255 is for a host. What you need is the subnet mask for the gateway of the 2 host network that your ISP segregates it's and your internet connection routers (usually a /28).

So that means that the subnet mask is 240?

I have tried that and I am getting "ip address not valid" ?

That was just a suggestion. What is the actual subnet your ISPs have handed you?
