After a few weeks of work and a delay of about 2 weeks we've got a first patch that you can try.
The work was done by : * Nicolas Riss <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Baptiste Ritter <email@example.com> * and myself
Currently CARP with IPv4 is working on our side (many thanks to VKERNEL for simplifying our tests and devs) but on IPv6 there are some trouble even if the "election" of the MASTER is done, you can't ping the virtual IP shared between the CARP group because the carp interface doesn't reply to Neighbor Sollicitation.
There are some cleanups left to do. And we will add in a next patch the modifications for the man pages. And probably all the Macro *LOCK() in the file ip_carp.c could be improved.
# cd /usr/ # patch -p1 < carp.patch
add the two lines : pseudo-device carp options CARP
in your kernel config And rebuild a kernel
For the configuration see the man page of FreeBSD located at : http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=carp&sektion=4&apropos=0&manpath=FreeBSD+6.2-RELEASE
If you've got any comments on how to improve this patch don't hesitate to tell us.
