    Default Hot-Standyby?

    Anyone doing anything with Untangle to have a hot-standby setup? Any plans for this in the works? I need it and am looking at my options. Untangle would be my preference.

    No, but there are bypass cards out there that can get Untangle out of the way so your other HA stuff can act as designed. Also, there's nothing preventing you from stuffing Untangle into an HA enabled virtual framework.

    Rob can I engage your services to see whether you might have a solution for what I'm trying to do?

    Rob do you have a solution that will also incorporate (work with) VPN tunnels?

    I don't have enough details on what you're trying to do to answer that question.

    I'll draw a picture of what we need to accomplish & post it here when done. Thanks!

    Rob here's an illustration of what we're doing. Basically a private hosted VM on a private VPN connection for each client. Do you think Untangle can do this (or you have a way to get Untangle to do this)? So far I haven't had good luck with an Untangle VPN that terminates to a VLAN. That's a completely separate issue that I'm working on with Untangle tech support (I also have a thread on the issue). But I also need a High-Availability solution for this infrastructure setup. I have solutions on redundancy for everything besides Untangle. And hot-standby is really the way we should go with this setup.

    Here's the image:

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

    Well once you get the virtual interface shenanigans sorted out so the lans connect... OpenVPN can easily do this, you just need to define separate OpenVPN address pools per client. Then use the firewall module to block all access from all OpenVPN address pool ranges to all, and manually specific specific pass rules for a given client's assigned address pool range, to the internal IP range on their VLAN. I do this currently for customers to access VMs hosted here at my office.

    HA however at this time can only be accomplished via VMWare or something similar. Clustered hyper-visors sitting on top of clustered SANs. Each Hypervisor expected to run Untangle simply needs network resources pointed at the Internet, and the associated HA features configured to move the VM to a functioning hypervisor in the event of a fault. VMotion is rather good at this.
