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
22.214.171.124 = router
192.168.1.1 = virtual address issued by firewall
126.96.36.199/24 = 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 !
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 !
