Title: HA best practice
Post by: mahescho on January 09, 2019, 08:53:54 pm

now, as I've gained some experience with OPNsense I plan to switch to HA. My current setup is no longer trivial by now. I've 3 up links. One static and two with PPPoE. I've also 5 internal links with LACP with a variety of VLANs and I make use of HAproxy. I need HA as the firewall not only manages the internet traffic. It als manages the complete internal communication. All my systems are dependent on the firewall.

What is the best approach in this environment to "switch" to HA? What about the PPPoE connections? How do they get handled? What is best practice. Right now I've read every thing about HA and CARP in the wiki.
