[NEWBIE]IPsec VPN Roadwarrior



  • Hi, i'm new on the forums and i have some questions about IPSec for mobile clients.

    I just wanna access all the servers in my LAN from outside with a VPN connection.

    Here's my network configuration:
    Internet <=> [Public IP] ADSL Router [192.168.1.254] <=> [192.168.1.162] Router [192.168.2.254] <=> LAN 192.168.2.0/24

    How do i plug my pfsense box, and how do i configure wan and lan interfaces to make VPN work ?



  • Hi,

    u would suggest this solution:

    Internet <=> { ADSL Router in Bridge Mode } <=> [Public IP via PPPoE] PFSense [192.168.2.254] <=> LAN 192.168.2.0/24

    Create dyndns account if u have dynamic ip. Then its easy to get VPN to work, either Ipsec based or Openvpn.

    Cya

    I agree with spiritbreaker. This is the most desired setup. Also.. Ive done this with a MikroTek routerboard as well as a PFsense system without issue. You will however have to make your PFsense system be your PPP authenticator (your modem will act more like a cable modem/dumb device) Ive got a very basic tutorial here that documents how to do this with a routerOS based device. It should at least get you started.
