Sorry but I don't understand why you have anything between the two firwalls?
You are just introducing another piece of hardware that can fail.  What type
of firewalls are you running?  Such as in the case of pix's you should only
have once xover cable between them that acts as the heartbeat and can fail
everything over to the secondary firewall.  Please elaborate.

Looking at our network layout. We have two firewalls, a primary and a
secondary. The two firewalls go to a hub which concentrates the two
together to the inside network segnment. We plan on replacing the hub
with a switch, but I was wondering if there is a better/cheaper solution
to concentrate the 2 firewalls together? Seems like a lot of money to
waste, if another solution could be used. Please let me know what you
have used, or if you know of something better.
Thanks in advance for any inputs, Harry
