2 masters



  • pleaaasse Help !
    I have 2 Pfsense with 3 physical interface: WAN / LAN / CARP
    I have 2 Vlan (vlan 10 and vlan 20). I configure synchronization on all interfaces

    in the PfSense 1 (master):
    LAN: Master
    WAN: Matser
    VLAN10: Matser
    VLAN20: Master

    in the PfSense 2 (Backup):
    LAN: Backup
    WAN: Backup
    VLAN10: Matser
    VLAN20: Master

    For Vlan interface, the 2 Pfsense are Master, but I put the same configuration for vlan and for Wan and LAN. I do not know why it does not work with VLANs

    You do not have connectivity between the two nodes on VLAN10 and VLAN20 for the CARP multicast traffic.

    Tag the VLANs through your switching properly.



  • I think there is connectivity between the 2 vlan, because there is the synchonization of DHCP and Firewall Rule (when I apply a rule on the vlan of the Pfsense master, the Pfsense Slave's Vlan synchronizes autumatically)

    Then maybe it is just multicast connectivity.

    With both as MASTER you should be able to see the CARP hearbeats from the other node when you capture CARP on VLAN10 or VLAN20. If you only see the hearbeats from the local node you are capturing on, there's your symptom.
