    Hi All,

     

    Is it now possible to terminate GRE tunnels on the VRRP IP address?

     

    I believe I read it in some release note but can someone confirm please?

     

    Thanks

    James

    I've been doing this for a while with good results. Never knew it was in doubt??? Can't remember the first version I did it in, but it was ages ago...

     

    Cheers!

    I've been doing it since early 3.x through 6.1.3.2, no worries.

    Working fine now. I was setting the source address on the master as the VRRP address which didn't work. When I changed it to the controllers IP it worked fine.

     

    Thanks

    I'm confused now.

     

    Tunnels from local controllers back to the headquarters have been rock-solid until I went from single master to VRRP-pair redundant master. Now they seem to forget to tunnel traffic.

     

    I left the tunnel configs exactly the same on the master and the local controllers, with the addition that I've duplicated the master's settings on the backup master -- that is both of them list the tunnel source as the master (virtual) IP.

     

    Should I set the tunnels on the masters as sourced from their IP real addresses?

    I don't want duplicate tunnels from locals to both masters, I just want one tunnel to the master-in-charge, so do I leave the locals pointing to the VRRP address?
