Failover VPN
« on: November 06, 2017, 03:20:50 pm »
Hi,

I setup carp on two VM`s with PFsense 2.4. While this works fine, I`m looking for a way to provide a failover VPN solution to Windows and Mac clients (no site-to-site) . I need it to (almost) seamless failover in case 1 of the 2 PFsense goes down or reboots. I tried setting up OpenVPN server on the CARP VIP. However, when I reboot the master, the VPN goes down and won`t reconnect.

What is the best way to setup a seamless failover VPN server?
