CARP-Captiveportal



  • Hello my friends i would like to post this question again in Captive portal , because it seems a common problem between CARP and Captive portal,
    I configured CARP in two PFsense machines as  follows
    Pfsense 1:
    WAN1:  78.150.140.252
    LAN1: 192.168.75.2
    Cayptive portal1:192.168.50.2
    s2nc1:192.168.80.2

    Pfsense 2:
    WAN2:  78.150.140.253
    LAN2: 192.168.75.3
    Captive portal2:192.168.50.3
    sync2:192.168.80.3
    Firewal => Virtual IPs : i set the WAN virtual IP as 78.150.140.251
                                                      LAN virtual IP as  192.168.75.1
                                                      Captive portal virtual IP :192.168.50.1
    then i edit the DHCP server of the Captive portal in such away the gateway is 192.168.50.1 (Virtual IP address of the Captive portal interface )

    i also edit the NAT for the whole entries => manual Outbound => translation interface =78.150.140.251(The virtual IP address of the WAN )

    CARP works good as redundancy , what ever i change in master machine , it changes automatically in backup machine.
    The problems , the clients connected to captive portal interface cant access internet , also i cant ping the virtual Ip address 192.168.50.1

    note : firewall for all interfaces : every thing allowed (any to any allowed)

    is there any thing to edit in the configuration or the DHCP server
    what do you suggest
    thanks
