Description

According to this pfSense doc, Loopback IPs are synchronized via XMLRPC because they are only ever active on the local machine and therefore cannot conflict with each other on multiple nods. However, this is not actually true. If you add a loopback IP into routing as a /32 network, it is capable of receiving traffic from any host on the network just like any other address is. I use this model to configure management interfaces for my firewalls so it would be helpful to have an option to disable XMLRPC sync for specific virtual IPs so that they don't conflict.
