VPN site to site / peer to peer router non working



  • Hi, I'm trying to setup a vpn between a pfSense 2.1.5 and a Zeroshell 3.8.0.
    It took me some time to figure out the Encryption algorithm to use: BF-CBC (128bit).

    VPN is up a show by the logs[1].
    There's olny a warning about ifconfig.

    I thing there's some issue with routes.
    This is the schema of my configuration:

    192.168.6.106 -- 192.168.6.101    192.168.2.254 -- 192.168.2.27
       server        192.168.158.1 -- 192.168.158.2        pc
                        pfSense         Zeroshell
    
    

    In the vpn configuration page page I set
    IPv4 Tunnel Network = 192.168.158.0/24
    IPv4 Local Network/s = 192.168.6.0/24
    IPv4 Remote Network/s = 192.168.2.0/24

    I was expecting this to  automaticaly create a route for network 192.168.2.0/24 but I don't see any in Diagnostic / route.

    This is what doesn't work:

    From server
    ping 192.168.158.1: ok
    ping 192.168.158.2: ok
    ping 192.168.2.254: no
    ping 192.168.2.27: no
    
    From pc
    ping 192.168.158.2: ok
    ping 192.168.158.2: NO  <-- ???
    ping 192.168.2.254: no
    ping 192.168.2.27: no
    
    From server
    traceroute --tcp -4 192.168.2.27
    traceroute to 192.168.2.27 (192.168.2.27), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

  • Is there a way to manually insert  the route?



  • Why do you use an old version? You should update.

    A peer to peer vpn should only use a /30 tunnel. There's no need for more IP addresses.

    I can't believe that the traceroute from the server to 192.168.2.27 goes out to WAN, since you have set "IPv4 Remote Network/s = 192.168.2.0/24" on pfSense.
    So check the routing table on pfSense. If the route isn't added there should be an entry in the log showing further details.

    On the Zeroshell you have also to set an OpenVPN route to 192.168.6.0/24 to get communication to work between these networks.



  • Hi sirio81,

    did you have solved your routingproblem? I have the same Problem, but i cant find out my problem.
    I have also created a gadeway and routing for it.

    In the vpn configuration page page I set
    IPv4 Tunnel Network = 10.2.28.0/30
    IPv4 Local Network/s = 192.168.221.0/24
    IPv4 Remote Network/s = 192.168.3.0/24

    Gateway:

    Name               Default Interface  Gateway    Monitor IP Description
    TestPFS2ZS                 PFS2ZS     10.2.28.1  10.2.28.1  TestPFS2ZS
    

    Static Routes:

    Network        Gateway 	           Interface Description 	Actions
    192.168.3.0/24 PFS2ZS  - 10.2.28.1 PFS2ZS    TestPFS2ZS
    

    In my Firewall / NAT / Outbound i see this information:

    10.10.10.1/32 127.0.0.0/8 ::1/128 192.168.3.0/24 192.168.221.0/24 10.2.28.0/30 
    

    my ping test from the pfsense:

    PING 192.168.3.252 (192.168.3.252) from 10.2.28.1: 56 data bytes

    but the p2p Networkinterface can ping google:

    PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8) from 10.2.28.1: 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=0 ttl=124 time=6.457 ms

    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 5.686/5.951/6.457/0.358 ms
    

    any ideas about it?

    Not how it works for vpn connection... I suggest you open your own thread and own details.. This thread is 8 months old and guy never came back and was using a 2.1.5 version of pfsense..



  • Oh, thank you. Sorry I put my request in here.
