Pfsync is a computer protocol used to synchronize firewall states between machines running Packet Filter (PF) for High Availability. It is used along with CARP to make sure a backup firewall has the same information as the main firewall. When the main machine in the firewall cluster dies, the backup machine is able to accept current connections without loss.
