No traffic on carp address



  • Hi,

    I have two VM's running Pfsense 2.3.2

    machine one:
        LAN 10.20.5.10
        WAN 10.20.5.11

    machine two:
        LAN  10.20.5.12
        WAN  10.20.5.13

    CARP
        WAN: 10.20.5.15
        LAN: 10.20.5.16

    When i do a tcpdump on 10.20.5.16 (CARP LAN) i dont get any traffic, im trying to have Squid sit on the carp lan interface so that if one machine fails the other can take over. however there is no traffic on CARP LAN,

    Any ideas?

    You can't have WAN and LAN in the same subnet.

    And if that is a bridge, then you do not want IP addresses on both WAN and LAN. But I hope it's not a bridge, since bridge+carp = big mistake.
