I am trying to implement a VRRP solution using two physical devices running VyOS 1.2.1 to test the high availability. Both devices have interfaces bridged (port1 and port2). The VyOS devices are not working in “route mode”, but in “bridge mode”, just analyzing traffic that goes through. I have the following questions:
- Is the network architecture that we are trying the best option or there is better design? Please check attachment.
2.When the “Hub” sends packets to both devices that are part of a VRRP group (nodes):
a) Will VRRP group take control at a logical level and re-route all these packets to the current “master device” all time? Please take into consideration that each device has at least one interface bridge.
b) Even with VRRP working fine at a logical level (switching Master/Slaves when needed), traffic will go through a “slave node” anyway due to the interface bridge on port 1 and port 2?
Thank you in advance
