L2TP over IPSec for iOS with v2.3.4

  • Hey guys,

    I tried to setup L2TP over IPSec following the official documentation from pfsense wiki. https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/L2TP/IPsec

    After setting up everything as described, I can't connect with my iOS Device. My pfsense is behind a router with configured port forwarding of 500 1701 and 4500.

    If anyone else have the same or nearly the same setup, I would be thankful, if you could provide me instructions how to setup the L2TP and IPSec.

    Thanks in advance,


  • Why not simply go with an IKEv2 setup as described in the following:


  • Because we don't want to use certificates on clients like iOS. Authentication should be based on Windows AD only.

    When we need to use certificates, we can also use OpenVPN which we are testing at the moment. But also there I got stuck, cause I can't reach devices in LAN, but I created a post in the OpenVPN category for that case.
