PIX Failover

    Hi

    I have recently purchased a Cisco PIX failover box. I would like to
    connect the main box to one of my distribution switches and the
    failover box to a different distribution switch to provide another
    level of redundancy. Is this possible? And is it worth doing?

    If the link to the active PIX fails will the failover PIX kick in?

    Thanks for any advice.
