Hi!

If I'll have multiple Kerio Control servers is it possible to set heartbeat with virtual IP between them?

Hi, B0rman,

You can set up a VPN tunnel between two Kerio servers, if that is what you're after? The VPN tunnel will have a heartbeat equivalent, which will alert you should the connection fail, or bounce. It will also allow the two networks to co-exist and allow access between them, assuming that the two networks do not share the same IP Address ranges.

There is a section in our KB that explains this for you.

If you need further help, feel free to contact Support for aid.

The main point is: we have 2 gateways with kerio. Each one has it's own IP and shared virtual IP (via heartbeat). Users will connect to virtual IP, so if one kerio seerver (gateway) will go down, users will not feel it. Is it possible to do with VPN? I think no...

Sorry, how do you configure shared virtual IP ? Are your firewall in windows system ?
How can we do it with appliance??

thanks

Since kerio appliance is linux based, I thought that it's possible to use heartbeat or CARP ( http://www.linux-ha.org/wiki/Heartbeat http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/carp.html ). I'm looking for failover (HA) solution when users should not notice if any of firewalls is down!

I believe you are asking for VRRP (RFC 2338) functionality. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing that feature added. The real hard part would be syncing session/configuration state.

I think it will be nice (and easy since software appliance is linux based) to add such functions as heartbeat and firewall config sync - it will be really flexible and reliable solution.
Currently I discovered interesting FreeBSD/OpenBSD solution for my HA needs.

P.s. Thanks for Your answers!
