I think this probably belongs in the Business section - most likely
Business / Network Security / Network Security Platform (NSP, NIPS, NAC, NTBA)
- so I've moved it out of Security Awareness into that location.

We would need more information on what your goals are to be able to correctly advise you. I see you mentioned a single path. This is the least common scenario. Are you looking for redundancy? Do you have two firewalls that have failover capabilities?
I recommend reviewing the high availability section of the device administration guide. It's available as PD23848 at kc.mcafee.com.
first thanks for your reply.
Yes its a single path deployment because my network has one path only, and looking for sensor redundancy only, i know this least scenario but what to do this is the req, please i have both unit now but not able to connect them, below is summary of what i did
1- connect the outside network to FOK "outside port"
2- connect the inside network to FOK "inside port"
3- connect the outside monitoring port of the FOK to port 3A "sensor1"
4- connect port 3B"sensor1" to port 3A "sensor2"
5- connect port 3B"sensor2" to the FOK "inside port"
PD23848 available at kc.mcafee.com has a section on "redundant sensors on a single path" on page 191. This is simlar to what you will want. I don't thing putting the two sensors stacked with a single fail open kit around them will be very successful. You should have 2 fail open kits if you truly want redundancy and fail open.
