IPSec with MacOS X L2TP client?



  • Hello!

    I just wonder if someone here managed to get a mobile client running MacOS X connect to pfsense via IPSec?

    This is all i can find in the ppp.log (MacOS X):

    Thu Dec  6 21:14:24 2007 : L2TP connecting to server '192.168.51.84' (192.168.51.84)...
    Thu Dec  6 21:14:27 2007 : L2TP sent SCCRQ
    Thu Dec  6 21:14:27 2007 : IPSec connection started
    Thu Dec  6 21:14:27 2007 : IPSec phase 1 client started
    Thu Dec  6 21:14:37 2007 : IPSec connection failed
    ...
    (The IP-address is the WAN-Interface of the pfsense connected to my LAN)

    And this is what I find at pfsense in /var/log/ipsec.log:
    ...
    racoon: ERROR: not acceptable Identity Protection mode

    There is also a strange thing, the L2TP-client in MacOS X wants a user, a password and psk to function properly, but if I understand it right pfsense just needs an identifier (equals user?) and the psk (same in MacOS X), right?

    Every hint is welcome, bye

  • L2TP and IPSec are not the same, so I don't think it should work. I've tried similar with the Windows L2TP client and it wouldn't work.



  • L2TP is not supported at this time.

    Thanks - that was not present that I can have IPsec without L2TP - I thought if you have IPsec you always have L2TP.
