IPsec gateway is

  • 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

    Any help will be appreciated.

  • Can you ping to the Internet by IP? Try 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 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 now but the intrenet traffic is not going thru the tunnel.  :(
