If serial extenders did work, the first time you have a problem Cisco and
call Cisco they will tell you it's an unsupported configuration. Unless you
want to use total freeware, hacking together a COTS solution usually gives
the vendor an excuse not to help you. Laura

I recall reading somewhere in the PIX documentation that "serial
extenders" - including modems - wil not work with the failover cable.
