HA SYNC Works only Once
I have two Pfsense firewalls setup in High Availability configuration mode. Everything seems to work, except that the synchronization works only the first time. Whenever I force Config sync through status Filter reload the following error is received.
“A communications error occurred while attempting to call XMLRPC method host_firmware_version”
After further investigation I found out that: All the rules on the interface used for synchronization on the SECONDARY firewall are removed and are not replaced with the corresponding rules on the primary firewall. If I re-enter rules again (which allow synchronization to pass) the synchronization again works only once.
It should be pointed out
- that the interfaces on both firewalls are setup exactly in the same order.
- Both Pfsense versions are 2.5.2.

Set the rule on the master in a way that it is also applicable on the secondary and allow XMLRPC sync.
Additionally add a rule on the secondary again which allow the initial sync.
E.g this is my sync rule set:
The PFSYNC net is a /30 and hence only includes the both HA nodes.
Your suggested settings worked perfectly for my setup thankyou
