Secondary Gateway showing offline

  • I am using two pfSense 2.01 firewalls configured with CARP.  Everything works as expected except I am not sure about one thing.  The Gateway on the secondary firewall shows off-line and does not have internet access.  Fail-over works correctly and the secondary picks up smoothly.  Our setup includes a /28 subnet with two of the IP addresses set to the firewalls and a third set a a CARP VIP.  Should this gateway show off-line and should the firewall not have access to the internet.

    The only issue I have with this is that I can not install packages on the secondary and the one package I am looking at is the AutoConfigBackup which won't work either for backing up the firewall.

    Thanks Gord.
