My HA share the same management ip, only the access port changes

L1 Bithead

Good afternoon


I have a Fw HA and these firewalls share the same IP. What I configure is that Nat changes the port to access the management.

The problem I present is that when I try to enter firewall B by gui and I want to make comparisons with fw A, the GUI session of firewall A automatically closes.

I know that the problem is for having the same ip of management is the two firewall.

But it is the only available IP that we have.


Do you have any recommendations regarding this problem?

Hello there.


I think I know what you saying.. You want to have 2 browser tabs open... one to the Primary FW, and one to the secondary FW.

Well, if you are using NAT (as I understood), then you are really creating a challenge.  Can only look at 1 FW at time.

The way to resolve is is to NOT use the same web browser session for each FW. 

Open up 2 different sessions, or two different browsers.. not NOT the same browser session...


I think this may be your true issue
