LT2P/IPSEC Wont Work
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 http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ 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).
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926179 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.
