LT2P/IPSEC Wont Work

  • Hey All

    I am new to pfsense and i have got dual wan to work no problem but vpn is causing me a headcahe.

    I have my own 2008 server running vpn which all works internally no problem,  However when i try and connect from the outside world using microsofts client as a test it wont connect.  I have read peoples posts on here set up firewall rules etc but wont happen.  I have seen someone say that you need to add a registry key but before i do that i try and use and i cannot get it to see any ipsec or l2tp ports.

    Any help on this would be great as running out of ideas.

    Which port forward entries -exactly- did you add? You should forward in udp/500, udp/4500, and ESP.

    Having the L2TP+IPsec server behind NAT has been a problem for others in the past (with any NAT, not just pfSense). is typically required to be set on the Windows server.

  • It was impossible for me to get this working .

    I ended up just going with SSTP , I was trying to avoid buying a certificate .

    I port forwarded all the correct ports and IP protocols and it just didn't work.

    The only firewall I have used the does this correctly is Astaro…but is sucks compared to pfSense.
