My scenario is:

  • Local net =
  • GW and VPN server =
  • Reserved IP for VPN clients = to 99

I'm using OpenSWAN + xl2tpd + PPP on Debian "Squeeze" 6.0.5 with kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64.

The connection has been established, but I can't ping any PC behind the VPN server.

"Why Mr. Anderson, why?"

Did you check your firewall settings? Check the logs to see if you have dropped packets. – JakeTheSnake Jan 9 '14 at 1:12
