I just want a hot standby for a single Linux firewall, such that clients behind it are not affected by a hardware failure on the firewall. If my configuration would allow me to someday promote the backup and run both firewall machines in a load-balancing configuration, so much the better. The following example looks very much like what I want: http://people.netfilter.org/pablo/conntrack-tools/testcase.html (Can anyone comment on whether I should stick with keepalived as described above, or try out ucarp?)Will you please clarify what you are really wanting to do per above and I'll be more than happy to try to point you in the right direction.Thanks, I'd appreciate any advice you can give me. -- ams
I guess you'll use vrrp in conjunction for failover. It would make sense to use vrrpd with status tracking of WAN gateway but AFAIK no such feature exists as yet.
