CARP on different Hardware, different Interfaces possible?


  • Hey!

    So far my pfsense was running on that ALIX boards, everything fine  :)
    But now i got an Upgrade to gigabit WAN and i built up an new firewall with amd64 hardware.

    Is it possible to use my old ALIX as an Backupfirewall or are there problems in the configuration because the hardware and the interfaces are different?

    thanks in advanced

    steve ;D


  • CARP is a network protocol and does not depend on hardware. So I think, it should also work on different hardware.

    Just try it out. You intend to build up pfSense on a new more powerful hardware anyway.
