Floating IP for Active-Active pair VPN

L3 Networker

Hi All,


I'm trying to configure a Floating IP for a VPN on an Active-Active pair of 5220's. I have the Floating IP configured with the Active-Primary Device Priority 1 and Active-Secondary with Device Priority 100. The Interface IPs for both devices are in different subnets to the Floating IP.


When I ping the floating IP from home, I see a log entry on the device for the ping but I never get a response from the ping.


Any idea's?

how are you communicating with the upstream router(s)? Do you have bgp set up?

Yes. BGP is used between the firewall and the upstream routers. I see my ping in the firewall logs but I would have thought it would respond as it is tied to the interfaces rather than try to route through, especially out of a different interface.
