Hello,

As said several times on this list, to have better quality, Google it
first..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fail-safe
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Failover

In short,

Fail Open: When the control fails, all traffic would be allowed.
Fail Close: When the control fails, all traffic would be blocked.

Thanks and regards,

In the case of network appliances (IPS, NAC, FW etc)



What is the difference between

fail open

fail safe

fail close

fail over
