VPN ipsec in android 4.2

  • hello,

    i'm try to setup an environment to test VPN with android devices,
    but i meet some problem,

    problem 1: android device have "IPsec Hybrid RSA" !!what is the right item i should choose in pfsense?

    IPsec vpn in pfsense have following choose: "Hybrid RSA + Xauth" , "Mutual RSA + Xauth"
                                                              ,"Mutual PSK + Xauth","Mutual PSK","Mutual RSA"
    or anyone can tell me how to setup?  i understand how to setup "IPsec Xauth PSK" and "IPsec Xauth RSA"

    and problem 2: Is l2tp work in pfsense2.0.2?i can't setup the environment.

    Short version: IPsec Xauth+PSK works, the others have not been tested or shown to be working by anyone I've heard from.

    L2TP is supported on its own, but not L2TP+IPsec. L2TP on its own offers no encryption, just tunneling.

    OpenVPN is supported via an app, and is the best VPN choice available.

  • thanks your answer!
    i just setup complete all the ipsec VPN.
    but i still can't setup the L2TP/IPSec PSK or L2TP/IPSec RSA VPN
    do you know pfsense2.0.2 support the function?

    thanks, ray!

    No, L2TP+IPsec does not work on 2.0.x or 2.1 even.

    We might add support for L2TP+IPsec before 2.1 ships but it's not 100% certain.

  • thanks your quick respone!

    i will survey another way to setup l2tp/ipsec vpn.

    thank you very much.
