Solved: No traffic through VPN



  • I am a rookie pfSense user and I followed the instructions on https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/IKEv2_with_EAP-MSCHAPv2 to setup my pfSense VPN. The client PC with Windows 8 seems to connect to the firewall. The virtual IP address is listed in ipconfig.

    And now the problem: I cannot ping from the client PC to any IP address on the server side.

    These are the specifics;

    192.168.113.95 = client pc
    192.168.113.1 = gateway
    83.85.162.139 = router

    192.168.1.1 = virtual address issued by firewall
    149.210.239.154/24 = firewall WAN
    10.1.1.254/24 = firewall LAN
    10.1.1.1 = destination pc

    • the firewall rule for IPSec IP4 * * * * * none is applied and active.

    • a ping (utility in the firewall webinterface) from the firewall to 10.1.1.1 works

    • a ping from 10.1.1.1 to 10.1.1.254 works

    • a ping from the client pc to 192.168.1.1 works

    • a ping from the client pc to 10.1.1.254 fails

    • a ping from the client pc to 10.1.1.1 fails

    I hope someone can shed some light on this.

    Many thanx in advance !

    Wilco.



  • It was a plain and simple routing problem on the client PC.
    As soon as I added the route;

    • route -p add 10.0.0.0 mask 255.0.0.0 192.168.1.1

    It works like a charm now !
