Carp and static IPs



  • Hi everyone,

    I have a question regarding Ip and carp.

    I have 8 statics IPs with my ISP and 2 soekris.Are there any change to make carp working without loosing 2 IPs each subnet?Those 2 Ips cannot be in another subnet?

    Thanks for the attention



  • No, the CARP IPs and the real interface IPs have to be in the same subnet so you "lose" 1 IP per Member in the cluster per interface, at least it can't be used for failover with CARP. Portforwards for example will of course still work for those real interface IPs, they just won't failover in case one of the nodes dies.
