IPsec gateway is 0.0.0.0



  • I am using the shrew soft vpn client to connect to my pfsense box running 2.3.1. I can see all my lan devices but I cannot surf the internet, as soon as the client connects I lose my internet connection and can only browse the remote local network. If I do an ipconfig in my laptop the shrew soft adapter says that it's gateway is 0.0.0.0.

    Any help will be appreciated.



  • Can you ping to the Internet by IP? Try 8.8.8.8. Might need to assign a DNS server that's reachable over the VPN. If IP connectivity to the Internet works, then it's likely a DNS issue.



  • You can also try to enable the "Provide a list of accessible networks to clients" under IPSec->Mobile Clients



  • I cannot reached 8.8.8.8 the google dns server, it times out when I try to ping it.
    "Provide a list of accessible networks to clients"  is enable under Ipsec-> Mobile clients.



  • I was able to fix it by unchecking Obtain Topology Automatically under Policy in the settings of the shrewsoft vpn client and adding my local subnet under remote network resource.
    I can ping 8.8.8.8 now but the intrenet traffic is not going thru the tunnel.  :(
