Question regarding redundant paths in multi agency environment.

    I am working on a project where I am connecting two agencies. Each agency
    has 20+ routers. One runs RIP v1, the other EIGRP. They will be connecting
    together via two PtP T1's. Each T1 is located at a different site. One T1
    is going to be the preferred path, the other is simply in place as a backup
    if the primary path fails. Now, a routing protocol running between the two
    would make this simple, redistributing RIP into EIGRP would make this
    simple, but the customer is placing a PIX 515E behind each T1 since politics
    dictate the companies will be seperate security boundatries and only
    explicit traffic will be forwarded between the two. They also do not wish to
    route together anyway. Any thoughts on how to accomplish this? I was
    considering using equal cost statics but that seems messy.

    To clarify, I am not sure how I can get this done because the routers
    connecting the two networks are in front of firewalls, so internal routers
    won't be able to detect link failures or route failures since they aren't
    communicating with the perimeter routers.
