There is a very detailed cookbook guide in this article : L2TP/IPSec VPN client on Fedora. It is even pretty recent, from October 1, 2014. It lists the packages to install : libreswan xl2tpd And the files that require editing : /etc/ipsec.d/desired_vpn_name.conf /etc/ipsec.d/desired_vpn_name.secrets /etc/xl2tpd/xl2tpd.conf ...

Ok, the problem was on the client side. I have no idea what the root cause was, but basically my client would not receive the static routes from the OpenVPN server for some reason. Uninstalling and reinstalling the OpenVPN client solved the issue :/ Therefore, the above configuration is perfectly correct.

This clearly appears to be some sort of network configuration error. Here are the most likely candidates. 1) Your Outlook is configured to look for the exchange server by local name (http://exchange01 - for instance) and, when you are not on the VPN it looks for exchange01 (the pretend hostname of exchange in this case) and finds nothing. When you are on ...

Have you tried msjnc? I've been using that for a couple of years from my Debian box to get into my employer's Juniper VPN. The instructions on the referenced site are pretty thorough.

For a command line tool to perform the Wake-on-LAN (WOL) function from a Microsoft Windows system, I use the free mc-wol program, but there are many similar free programs. You need to know the media access control (MAC) address for the network card in your office system in order to send the magic packet to it. You can get a MAC address for a system by ...

Depends, normally you can use "magic packet" on ethernet layer to do "Wake-on-Lan" computer. Trouble is that this "magic packet" cannot be send over VPN because it is not ethernet but TCP/IP. You must use some computer/server in office on the same LAN to send a packet. For example I am solving the same issue at my home and I will be using micro computer ...

I believe some VPN providers do offer a solution for companies such as yours. Also, it will be handful if you asked for multi-login feature through which you can get greater access to devices and save cost. I have known firms that have worked things out this way.

Disclaimer: I'm a *nix guy, not a OSX guy, so I'm speaking from a position of commonalities rather than specifics. Admin rights are required to set up the virtual network interface that the VPN uses. You probably can't get around requiring at least some sudo rights for this, but you should be able to figure out exactly what commands the VPN setup is using ...

The answer is already there. It even says This function is not supported on this system. Don't get fooled by this message because its just that you didn't give the correct syntax. which is what got me fooled. However, to make it run more seamlessly, some additional tweaks are necessary. I still have one issue with this: When the connection fails ...

its a different approach, but i successfully 'protected' my home network from p2p (and other stuff) by - allowing only 2 remote ports (tcp 443+80) and using opendns FamilyShield DNS (208.67.222.123,208.67.220.123) which blocks a lot of websites, so i have a local dns resolver/cache (dnsmasq) setup in my home network where i can add exceptions.

The difference between a VPN and a Proxy is well explained in the link provided by Saeed (What is the difference between a proxy and a VPN?). However, to expand the explanation as to WHY we may use them... One primary reason for using a VPN is to get around blocks put in place on a network by the owner of that network (a hotel, a company or a ...

It's the VPN client. Your admin can configure the VPN to route all traffic via the VPN tunnel. Specifically, the metric for the VPN gateway is lower than the regular LAN: IPv4 Route Table = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Active Routes: Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric ...

Instead of trying to get your clients onto your 192. network you should put your server on the 172. network (in addition to it's current IP). Just sign on to the VPN from your server and make sure it has a static IP assigned in the OpenVPN settings and you should be all set.

I think what you are asking is called Split Tunneling. If you are using Windows' native VPN client go to Control Panel-> Network and Internet-> Network Connections -> YOUR VPN CONNECTION -> Properties -> Networking -> IPv4 properties -> Advanced -> Uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network" If you are using another software, just look for split ...

If the 2 screens are the same resolution, or the remote is larger, the screen you remote to will actually need more space than you have, to show it inside the window, so it will auto-scroll. Two ways to prevent auto-scroll are Set the resolution on the remote screen smaller than Native [which may mess with icon positions] or Use 'Scale content' in the ...

This is an old question but I want to add some other options. The advantage of both of these is that you can still keep using SSTP on port 443. This is especially useful because this port is open in most company, hotel, hotspot, ... firewalls, allowing you set up a VPN connection where PPTP/IPSec/... would fail. Use IIS instead of Apache You can run ...

In my opinion, there is no VPN that can be used with other VPN services at the same time. You can set some programs go with VPN traffic, other programs use the original network. For more details, refer to this instruction: http://www.flyvpn.com/FlyVPN-VPN-Client-3-Specific-Traffic-Via-VPN-Tutorial.html.

I figured it out. Here's an illustration, followed by a text explanation of what was going on. First of all, any mapped drive needs to be connected in order to delete it. That seems to be a general issue with mapped drives in Windows. Second, the reason the Client was able to connect to Server B, despite the only active VPN from the Client being to ...

I figured it out. First of all, the drive has to be connected in order to delete it. That seems to be a general issue with mapped drives in Windows. Second, the reason the Client was able to connect to Server B, despite the only active VPN from the Client being to Server A, is that Server B also had established a VPN connection to Server A, using the same ...

I believe you'll want something along lines of the many network monitoring solutions a la nagios, where if a ping fails, an action will be taken: Ping something on the lan on the other side of the VPN Ping the other routers VPN IP Ping the other routers wan IP Ping the local default gateway (router) Ping the next hop along the isps network to give to ISP ...

Looks like it may just be a DNS failure. See if you can get any lookups to succeed. dig yahoo.com 'A' record(s) returned? No, try looking up against a specific DNS server instead (in this example a public DNS server): dig @8.8.8.8 yahoo.com Any better luck? If neither works then DNS queries are not making it out at all. If only the second one ...

Did you download a new client like warning indicated? The new client will have a new built-in configuration file that recognizes the changes you did on the access server. Your existing client is likely still using the old configuration. I haven't played with the Access Server too much but there may be a way to "export" the current client configuration ...

One way would be to discard using the Windows Firewall, which is very difficult to use for many scenarios anyway. You could try another software firewall product, like Comodo Firewall, which has a free and a Pro version. Both can do application level rules for both inbound and outbound traffic, as well as global rules, so you could block everything except ...

The default gateway has to be on the same network as your PC (192.168.90.x/24). You need to configure a policy on the Fortigate to route all traffic from 192.168.90.22 through the VPN and set the default gateway of the computer to the IP address of the Fortinet. Look at page 140 on the manual for instructions on how to set this up.

I finally figured out how to solve my problem! Yes, you first need to go into your VPN settings | Networking tab, then for both IPv4 and IPv6 properties, after clicking the Advanced button, make sure "Use default gateway on remote network" is unchecked. Then, however, you need to setup routing to the IPs that you wish to access through that VPN, or you ...

Have you tried to do that on your router ? Mostly all routers today support this just google your router and vpn and you found how to do it , by doing that all devices connected to internet via router will use the VPN if you do not want that try to give XBox an static ip adress and foward it to your vpn

I think the term you are looking for is "split tunneling". Whether or not it can be implemented on your router though, is entirely dependent on the router and its firmware's capability.

Since this features apparently is specific to OS X, here’s a specific answer: Your location is not determined by IP addresses or whatever but via WiFi triangulation, just like modern smartphones do. An internet connection is required because the actual triangulation algorithm is an online service backed by a database of WiFi networks and their locations. ...

The main functionality that you will want to look for in choosing a VPN solution is 'UDP hole-punching'. It works by coordinating (either manually or with a registry) the IP address, source and destination port of both ends of the VPN tunnel. Assuming the firewalls are stateful, when a peer sends out a packet to the other peer, it temporarily opens a hole ...

Yes, Inter-Continent VPN's are extremely common - its a prime way arround the great firewall of China, and businesses with multiple locations will often do the same. There will usually be a performance hit with using a VPN - how severe will depend on a number of factors, but chiefly - How much further the distance between you -> vpn -> dest is relative to ...

"domainname.com" is the domain name. You need to specify the host name of the computer on the domain you want to access. ie: servername.domainname.com. That's assuming you work's IT have DNS setup properly for use with the VPN. If not, then (once connected to via the VPN) you should be able to use the server's LAN IP address to access it instead. For ...

I am having the same issue. Right now, it looks like the issue is with my ISP. Try doing a traceroute to your server. For me, this fails before reaching the server.

Sorry this reply was too long for a comment. In answer to your last comment: The problem is that a routing table (in windows at least) is quite simple.

Your requirement appears more or less similar to any corporation's VPN; you want your laptop to appear to be on your home network for the purposes of Internet access (and quite possibly other access). I haven't used IPsec VPN's, and they should work fine when correctly configured, but I have done exactly what you're suggesting with OpenVPN servers on ...

You cannot restrict the movements (internet) off applications on Mac. Meaning if I want to use VPN either all my programs go through it, or I use virtual box and VPN through the virtual box.

First off, if you can Remote Desktop in to a business without a VPN, then you should bring it to their attention. That is a rather large security risk. Internal services, such as Remote Desktop, ideally should only be accessible via a VPN. Only services that are being offered to the public should be accessible through the firewall. This includes services ...

The routes the packets would go should be the same or similar either way. So no performance difference that I can see, though if you notice a difference then you can overrule that estimatation. If your "remote viewing"(or as it's more commonly known, desktop sharing) is done via remote desktop, that's encrypted. If it is done via some free VNC then it can ...

If the networks start to overlap, they can come into conflict. Although it will not give you a "duplicate ip" error if both use DHCP and everything is configured properly, packages will stop arriving correctly. For this to happen, the subnet has to allow for these ranges to overlap. For example: 10.0.0.x with 255.255.255.0 and another one identical to ...

tun0 would be the VPN interface. However, the VPN is only a virtual interface. The traffic must travel over a physical interface to communicate with the internet. So all traffic traveling over tun0 must travel over a physical interface such as en0, albeit in a likely encrypted state.
