L2TP VPN using IP alias on WAN interface not working

  • Hi all,

    I have a cloud based pfsense installation.

    The hosting service will not give me more than two NICs for my virtual server(WAN and LAN).

    If I read the pfSense documentation correctly, L2TP requires a unique public IP and ethernet interface. Is this correct?

    Is there any other way to make this work?

    I have IPSec site to site connections working but hoping to use L2TP for my road warrior/mobile users.


  • Hi anyone know how to fix this or if there is a previous thread can someone link me to it?


  • I have same issue and i find out workaround:
    Create NAT rule on WAN interface from alias IP to WAN IP for UDP 1701
    Good luck
