Passive device dataplane interface and management interface

Hi Team,


Can we ping management IP of the passive device from the any one of the dataplane interface on the passive device.


Interfaces on the passive devices are up (showing green) --> passive link state is auto.


We have tried pinging the internet interface and it is working fine but internet is not working.


We are unable to ping the managemet interface from the lan interface and also Lan interface to switch which is directly connected to that interface.


Note: Currnetly primarly device is holding traffic. which is active device.

           Managemet IP's for the firewalls are diffrent.


Thanks in advance.

The passive device will drop traffic to all interfaces besides the management interface, so this isn't something you'll be able to accomplish on a passive device.
