failover between two different firewall brands

Greetings all

I want to know if any of you have ever done a wan failover configuration between two different firewall vendor. Specifically between a Sonicwall NSA 240 and a Pix 515. We are migrating off of the Pix as our primary firewall solution but I would still like to keep the pix for fail over. Has anyone done this? Is this even possible?

    I don't know that is possible. Most clustering relies on heartbeat detection and some won't even do so outside of similar model or family.

    If it is possible, it's probably not going to be easy to get working right. I used to work on SonicWall stuff. I'm definitely not a huge fan of theirs.
    I bring nothing useful to the table...

    Confirmed by Sonicwall that is isn't possible. We can do Wan failover but nothing more...
