Convert pfsense Carp failover L3 firewall to carp failover transparent firewall
grzmrc last edited by
I have 2 pfsense 2.1 box configured as traditional Carp Failover:
WAN 192.168.1.1/24 gw 192.168.1.122
WAN 192.168.1.2/24 gw 192.168.1.122
Carp LAN VIP=10.0.8.122/25
Cerp WAN VIP=192.168.1.121/24
it works very well, but the corporate network will change and I'll must adeguate my configuration.
the corporate router LAN interface will change from 192.168.1.122 to 10.0.8.122.
I think that the only way I have to make pfsense works again, is to convert it in a transparent firewall.
The new configuration is the following…
LAN 10.0.8.1 /25
WAN 10.0.8.101/25 gw 10.0.8.122
WAN 10.0.8.102/25 gw 10.0.8.122
Carp LAN VIP=10.0.8.121/25
Cerp WAN VIP=10.0.8.120/25
Obviously the phisical connections are
WAN PFsense - router
LAN pfsense - internal switch
When I try to bridge LAN and WAN interface, the switch stops to work correctly and clients stop to comunicate (loop???).
May you help me to solve the issue and correctly convert my configuration in a transparent firewall with failover?
