IPSec VPN clients not getting gateway address


  • I have set up IPSec VPN PSK + XAUTH.  My clients can connect using the Shrew client on Windows.  The tunnel does connect and they receive a Virtual IP in the range I have set, but they do not get a default gateway so they are stuck not being able to get anywhere.

    Is there a setting somewhere I missed?

    IPsec doesn't use gateways. The settings on Shrew Soft's policies tab and on the Mobile tab of pfSense control what will be sent over the tunnel.


  • I couldn't get it to work no matter what settings so I jumped over to OpenVPN and good to go.

    Impressed with the UserExport package that packages the User Cert and OpenVPN into one installation package.  Worked perfect first time.
