comment pfSense failover and OpenVPN site-to-site
The "interface" box determines what IP is bound, that's where you pick the CARP IP. Trust me...I only founded pfSense and literally wrote the book on it.

comment pfsense long ping to google
Better to have a local cache with the DNS forwarder, and its behavior of querying all configured servers simultaneously taking the fastest response, rather than clients waiting for a timeout, moving to another server, rinse and repeat.

comment pfSense dropping gateway interface randomly
Where you can set it as static, that's always preferable. Not because there's any problem inherent in doing DHCP generally speaking, but there are cases with some cable modems for instance in the "modem assigns you a private IP" scenario I mentioned where a static WAN might mask that kind of problem.

comment IPSec L2L Failover between two pfSense devices
OpenVPN can and will fail over. IPsec as well, not aware of any significant issues there, though there are occasional circumstances where you need the Sys>Advanced option to restart IPsec on WAN failure for it to successfully come up on the other WAN.
