   I can't seem to subscribe to freebsd-net mailinglist. I have  1 question however. I have 2 machines running freebsd 6.0 compiled with "device carp". The example in the carp manual slightly confuses me. I can't make those 2 machines to appear as one... I hope you can help me.
 machine A has xl0 with assigned ip of
 machine B has xl0 with assigned ip of
 Now following the example on carp(4) manual:
 On machine A:
 ifconfig carp0 create
 ifconfig carp0 vhid 1 pass mypasswd
 so now, machine A shows these in ifconfig:
 carp0: flags=41<UP,RUNNING> mtu 1500
 inet netmask 0xffffff00
 carp: BACKUP vhid 1 advbase 1 advskew 0
 meanwhile on machine B
 ifconfig carp0 create
 ifconfig carp0 vhid 1 advskew 100 pass mypasswd 
 and I got is duplicated by xl0 (
 What I wanted to do is to do some failover... ssh to and see what machine it would  connect to.. then pull the utp out... and repeat the process.. this time it should ssh to the backup server..
