L2TP information



  • Sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm having trouble tracking down details on how to get L2TP working on pfSense 2.0.1-RELEASE (i386).  I think I've got things setup fine in the L2TP configuration.  PPTP is working fine using RADIUS to Active Directory for authentication.  I've got L2TP configured basically the same.

    Interface: WAN, Server address: 10.10.40.1, Remote address range: 10.10.40.64/26, 10 users, secret setup, CHAP encryption, DNS and RADIUS configured.

    I think I've got the rules setup ok.  L2TP VPN allows all, WAN allows UDP 1701 and UDP 500.

    Snippet from log:
    l2tps: process 29375 started, version 4.4.1 (root@FreeBSD_8.0_pfSense_2.0-snaps.pfsense.org 13:55 11-Aug-2011)

    l2tps: L2TP: waiting for connection on 0.0.0.0 1701

    I see nothing else in the logs when I try and connect from my iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.

    Any help is appreciated!  Thanks!

    Those devices want L2TP+IPsec, not plain L2TP.

  • Ok - thanks for the information.  I'm newish to L2TP/IPSec, but I think I understand what pfSense supports now and what it doesn't.
