CARP, failover and active downloads

  • Hi all!

    I've got two HP DL360's running in CARP-mode.  The failover works as it should, but active downloads stops when CARP switches over to the backup-router.  SIP-calls, web-streaming, ping etc continues to work, but active downloads will not resume until the primary router takes over again.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: Running pfsense 1.2.3


  • This happens for me , some networking programs have no problem (like radmin, a remote administrator) they just freeze for a couple of seconds. Others like ftp connections die. I was thinking that it's just the nature of the transfer and ftp can't compensate. At least a fail over should be a rare occurrence and we might have to live with these kinds of things.
