Captive portal CARP sync logged in users



  • Hi,

    I'm playing with the CARP setup and was wondering does CARP sync the logged in users for the captive portal?

    Under the sync options i have EVERYTHING ticked, however when i authenticate a user, its does not show as an authenticated user on the failover box,

    Cheers

    Chris

    No. I don't think so.

    When I ran a HA pair for captive portal, I turned off sync for that feature and did not have captive portal running on the secondary/backup, so traffic would flow.

    I determined it was more important to keep the phone at the front desk from ringing in the event of a failure, than having some silly captive portal active in that rare case.

    You know what, your right, sometimes the simplistic idea is the best one.

    Thank you
