Virtual IPs



  • Hi,
      Currently running 1.0-RELEASE. When I set my Virtual IPs on my WAN interface, and login to the pfSense machine via SSH and drop into a shell. I notice (even after a reboot) that my WAN interface (vr0) is not setup with the Virtual IPs I entered into the GUI. I had to create a shell script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ to set the aliased ips at boot time. Has anyone else expierienced this?

    pfSense VIPs don't use the interface aliases in FreeBSD.  You're working to hard at this and overthinking the solution.  Use proxy arp or CARP VIP types instead of "other".
