  • Check the vhid assignment on the two machines, check the carp password.



  • okay but are the carp numbers not supposed to be sequential ie i have to carp0

  • My guess is more than one CARP IP with the same VHID. The same problem showed up at the IRC channel today and it was several IPs using the same VHID.



  • using ifconfig everything is normal vhids are sequential and all ips are different on both master and backup. I actually found this while troubleshooting why i can't download files over 100k and emails larger than 200k over ipsec.



  • okay this is what i found if you have a address of *x.x.x.25 and you also have a address of x.x.x.2 you will ned up  with the same carp numbers. I have fixed it but still does not solve my problem of not being able to download files or email attachments. I have tried every suggestions mentioned on the forum. So i am open to new ideas
