Carp failover, multiple routers, how to setup gateways

  • We currently have 2x pfSense 2.0 boxes in a carp failover. Upstream we have 2x Vyatta routers running BGP with several providers. On the WAN side of pfSense, how do I setup the gateways. I don't want to hardcode either routers ip. I saw there is a new gateway group feature, but not sure if that's what I want. I setup a group that pointed to both routers, but was unavailable in the WAN drop down for gateway. Is there a different protocol I should be using altogether?

  • If anyone cares, we setup OSPF and removed the GW's
