Replacing Toilet Flange in 1/2 Bath

Are cast iron flanges typically bonded or soldered to the drain pipe if that is also cast iron? I don't want to get too aggressive and end up damaging the drain pipe. Any recommendations?
You can keep the existing flange and do it how Alan said or you can get a metal flange with the higher hight they do make them you can solder together.
