Backup interface on SSG-520/550

Is it possible to configure serial interface as backup interface on SSG-520/550? My current link to ISP is ethernet but I have option to use serial interface as backup to the same ISP. On smaller SSG-s it works fine, but on SSG-500 I don't see the way how to configure it.

Thanks,

Re: Backup interface on SSG-520/550

Only the SSG5 has the backup interface feature.
However, you can utilize the 'interface failover' feature.

Refer to these KB's:
http://kb.juniper.net/KB8704
http://kb.juniper.net/KB7740

replacing one of the ethernet interfaces with the AUX port serial interface.

Let us know how it goes.

Re: Backup interface on SSG-520/550

Thanks for the answer, but interface failover isn't what I need. Backup should be on synchronous (V.35 or X.21) serial interface with frame relay encapsulation. Is this feature in the roadmap for SSG-140, SSG-300 and SSG-500 systems?

Best regards,

You may have already figured this out.
If you want a synchronous serial connection, then you need to add the Synchronous Serial PIM to your SSG140, 300, or 500 series:

Then you would utilize the 'interface failover' feature with the serial interface.

Will that accomplish what you're looking for?
