Request - Dummies guide to HA setup
I'm looking to get some clarity on how to setup high availability with two broadband connections.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a step by step guide ? Or give me a good summary of what's required?
I don't know PFSense / Netgate boxes too well so apologies... Basically we have an existing PFSense with a single broadband connection... and it performs very well.
We have commissioned a 2nd broadband connection and we need to get it connected to the Netgate and my hope was that we could operate it in an active / passive way so that were we to lose the primary connection it would automatically kick over to the second.
We also have a second Netgate which I'm told we can setup to mirror the first one but I don't know how that works... The broadband connections are piped into a cisco core switch on VLANS 2122 and 2126 respectively.. and are available via trunk ports to the Netgate(s)... So I'm hoping it's just a configuration thing.... Anyway if I can provide additional clarity to help you help me please ask..
when I've done my HA configuration I followed this:
Hope this can help to start.
