Carp newb dumb question
I am looking to "manually" force a failover via a script using either wget or telnet from a windows box that has management monitoring software (Legato AAM) that when there is an alarm it could invoke it.
Initially I am looking at somehow using ssh or wget to invoke an ifconfig command, or can someone point me in a better or different direction?
->Diagnostics -> Command Prompt
Or the actual php script 'exec.php'
unfortunately "exec.php?txtcommand=ifconfig" doesnt work because the GUI only looks for POST and not GETs, so you have to wrap your request in a POST, but thats fairly easy to do in a small script, even on a wintendo. (remember that you need to auth to pfsense too)
You could also make a ssh-keypair without password, so you can always throw commands directly at pfsense through ssh.
