RE: OpenBSD Router & Carp



Is that for current, if so my next insane question would be, would it
compile with the 3.5 release sources.

Check the last commit message for ip_carp.c:
http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/sys/netinet/ip_carp.c
Quote:
  So if one of the carp interfaces is known to be bad (because the
  physical interface it's associated with is bad), all the other carp
  interfaces back off: they won't preempt, and their advskew goes to
240.
End quote.
