PfSense in Azure and high availability



  • Hi,

    Is there best practise how to setup high availability installation in Azure?
    I have template which generates  enough interfaces, but i needed to know
    how to configure psSense failover in Azure. Do I need to use load balancer and
    if I need to use LB, how i need to configure pfSense firewalls (CARP etc)?

    Br,

    Ville



  • Hello everyone,
    This is really really becoming more relevant. May you please share some guidance to implement this?Thanks



  • I am assuming from the lack of response that it's not possible at all. Having done a bit of reading I don't see any information on it.
    You'd have to come up with a system of your own to sync the configs and load balance to a single unit, then fail-over to the secondary with a clever health-probe / local service listener on each device.
    Would be good if someone has tried and failed or tried and succeeded to get this working to post their findings here.

    We are attempting to do the same thing.  Any pointers on how you accomplished this?  I'm attempting to use a reverse load balancer, but can't get outbound traffic working.



  • Hi. Dont know if you re still on this but... i partially set up am ha environment using carp. However, I havemt been able to set up an ip sec vpn since I can’t put the same virtual public ip to both nodes. I have tried to fix fhis using azure load balancer but it is not working right.
