Hello All: I'm interested in using PF to front a web farm where there will be lots of static IP addresses for SSL affinity. As such, I expect to have many more than 255 CARP interfaces. But, as I understand it, I'm limited to 255 vhid's and I have to have a discreet vhid per CARP interface.
Is there a way to configure my CARP interfaces such that I can get around this limitation? Right now, I configure everything as: ifconfig_carp5="inet 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.192 vhid 5 advskew 0 pass mypass" ifconfig_carp6="inet 192.168.1.3 netmask 255.255.255.192 vhid 6 advskew 0 pass mypass" and so on. I'm wondering if there is a way to alias IP addresses in the same subnet "ifconfig_carp5_alias" or something similar. It seems like there is a reuse mechanism in OpenBSD because you can associate a carpdev to the entry, but I don't see that in FreeBSD. Regards, Mike -- Michael K.
