pfSense HA/CARP is Active/Passive?

  • Hi,

    I've been trying to explore pfSense in HA/CARP and is working on my simulation, my question is based from my observation, only one is running while the backup is waiting until the primary will be down. is there a possibility wherein I can use the two firewall as to utilize/maximize the hardware, because it I felt that the other hardware would be a waste not until a hardware failure occurs?

    Thanks, appreciate your feedback!
