Unable to ping backup unit in CARP setup - solved.

  • Hi all,

    I have two boxes running 2.2.6-RELEASE in a CARP setup. I have openvpn configured to listen on a vip and place the client on the local network. The master box has a local ip of and the backup The local vip is When I vpn in to the network, i can ping the master box but can't ping the backup unit at If i shut down the master and the backup handles the vpn, I can ping the unit. Does anyone know why this is happening? I would like to be able access the webconfig gui of both boxes when I vpn in.


    Problem solved by adding outbound NAT rule. Thx.
