IP interface doesn't respond after switched CARP



  • Hi all,

    I have two pfsense 2.2.6.
    pfsense A is the master - network interface IP : 192.168.0.2
    pfsense B is the backup - network interface IP : 192.168.0.3
    I deployed CARP - virtual IP : 192.168.0.1

    From a VM in this LAN I can ping 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3.

    When pfsense A enters in persistent CARP maintenance mode, I can ping 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3.
    When I leave the CARP maintenance mode, it's the same thing. OK.

    When I shutdown the A interface, pfsense B becomes the master and I can ping 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.3 IPs. No 192.168.0.2, because interface 1 is down. OK.

    When I turn on the A interface, pfsense A becomes again the master and pfsense B the backup. I can ping 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 IP, but I can't ping 192.168.0.3 (interface B). I must do apply changes in interface B to ping it anew.

    Anyone have this problem?

    Why would you do that and why do you consider it a problem?
