CARP: Web GUI on backup slow but only from LAN, WAN is fine



  • Hi,

    I have set up CARP which works just great.
    There is just one annoying effect:
    When I login from LAN network on the Web GUI of backup node, its terrible slow.
    But if I login through WAN interface on the Web GUI of the same backup node it works normally fast.
    The GW of my LAN is the CARP vIP.

    EDIT: I can ping backup node, and I get almost the same latency like on primary.


  • Netgate

    You need to access the secondary on its address that is directly on the network you are connecting from else you have an asymmetric routing situation.



  • Thanks, this was the trick!
