HA With proxmox & PFSense

Hi all,

I’m a little confused on how I would achieve this goal..... I’ve been tasked with migrating over our existing PFSense VSrv & setting up HA in the event a server fails or VM fails. I have setup a Proxmox cluster [ 2xDell R630 as PMS & 1xDell 3040Wyse running debian as a QDevice to maintain Quorum ].

Can someone correct me if I’m thinking about this the wrong way please.

We have a Single ISPWAN going straight to the existing PFSense VSrv. If take the ISPWAN & plug it into a managed switch configured with a VLAN of 3 ports…. ISPWan, Proxmox PFSense VSrv1 & Proxmox PFSense VSrv2.

How would go about setting up HA with Proxmox working?. For this…. I need the ability if any of the proxmox servers fail they change & if the PFSense VSrv fails the second takes over....

any guidence would be apreciated with this.
