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 192.168.0.2 and the backup 192.168.0.3. The local vip is 192.168.0.1. When I vpn in to the network, i can ping the master box but can't ping the backup unit at 192.168.0.3. 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.

    EDIT:

    Problem solved by adding outbound NAT rule. Thx.
