Well... You've already named your trouble - which is caused by ipfail
not being compatible with release 2.
We don't yet have a replacement feature for ipfail. It's not going to
work - at all.
When someone asks you to post your files what we mean is post your files
- the whole thing. I knew what it was when I first read your
description - but since you didn't post your whole set of files, it
sounded wrong. Please read this article:
This item says search the mailing list archives, and submit all of your
config files, and your whole set of logs not partial logs. It's good
advice. Now maybe you know why.
