Gateway Group with Virtual IP



  • Hello guys!
    How configure this option in Gateway Group - Virtual IP. I need create on failover using virtual ip. Is possible? This option in my firewall is unavailable.

    Did you already add the IP address in Menu: Firewall: Virtual IP Addresses ?

    (Also, are you running 2.1.3-RELEASE?)



  • Hello MindfulCoyote,

    Yes, I  have 35 Virtual IP configured in my firewall pfsense 2.1.3 version.



  • Ok, after looking at the source code for the form I found that it only selects CARP Virtual IPs.

    I'm not entirely sure why that is, but it appears you will need to change your Virtual IP type from 'IP Alias'  to CARP if you need to assign them in the Gateway Group. (Using CARP instead of IP Alias generally will not cause you any trouble that I'm aware of… YMMV.)

  • Hello mindfulCoyote,

    Thanks for answer me, you are right :). I managed configure this option and tonight i'll test ipsec failover with virtual ip.

    ;D
