Port forwarding (VIP) not working after CARP failover!!!

  • K,I've got 2 pfsense firewalls doing carp successfully. They are syncing rules etc, but when I failover to the backup, in and outbound connections dont seem behave as when I was using the original master.

    I do still have a connection out but the continuous ping I run to an outside address stops and it wont reinitiate. But mainly, the port forwarding (from VIP) stops working!!! This is crucial as I need the redundancy but I also need to be able to get to inside servers after failover.

    I am thinking this might have something to do with arp tables needing a refresh somewhere? Any suggestions?
