Re: VPN Client access other services on SE Server

Oh I see "secureNAT" is doing just what it is supposed to do Then. It isolates any VPN connections from the Local network. Basically allow you to create a separate network.

"Local bridge" connects the local network to the virtual HUB and would allow access to the local network to the clients.

Re: My VPNGATE server does not show up in server list

Yes all port are open. Port 500 and 4500 is only for IPsec/L2tp, but yes they are open.

I can connect to the VPNgate hub by manually entering the Dynamic DNS (opengw.net) name provided in the Software.

It just never shows up on the server list. So it will never get used as no one knows it is there.

My VPNGATE server does not show up in server list

I enabled the VPN gate feature on my Softether server. However my server does not show up on the server list.

The VPNGATE virtual hub works fine, but my server is not being published to the server list.

Re: Please help me set this up

@ Noob You logic is fine, however. Is the multi NIC computers A and B serving as gateways of some kind? I ask because they are before the switch in your image. Or are all 3 NICs on the Multi-MIC computers connected to the same switch as the 3 comps in the image? IE: CableModem=====>FirewallBOX=====>...

Adding additional block ports to access list

I want to block additional port using the access list on the VPN-GATE virtual hub but it will not let me save them.

I mainly want to block people from using my VPN-Gate HUB for torrenting

Re: Site to Site VPN using Layer-3 switch issues

On your original post you never mentioned that you created a "local bridge" at the remote locations (Home-Site). However you did create one at the server location. A "local bridge" is needed at all sites I believe. I thought this might be the cause of the issues you were having. The graphic on the L...

@ yusuf

I think you might need to create a " local Bridge " at the remote HEXA Location. Your screen shots look like you did at the Plea server location.

Re: How many Ethernet ports to I need to setup a server or a bridge?

@ AMSGA

Did you get this resolved? If not with a little more info I might be able to help. When you say LAN to LAN do you mean you are using the casscade connection feature in Softether to make the LAN to LAN connection?

Let me know if you want help?

Re: Absolutely newb here. Please. Help.

If you want clients that connect to the server to access local resources on your servers network you need to set up a local bridge. Then any shares will be available to client connecting. You do not have to install the client and server software on the same PC/SERVER to get this to work properly. 1)...

Re: NAT Traversal *** How does this work ?

Thank you for your reply.

So I would only need to open the TCP listening ports on the Server Firewall ie: the PC/Server the VPN is installed on.

I do not need to open the ports on the Router-NAT/Firewall.

I have tested this and it does work.

Thank you for your help.

NAT Traversal *** How does this work ?

Thank you for providing this wonderful VPN software! I am unclear how NAT Traversal works. How does the client or cascade connection know where the VPN server is behind my Router/NAT firewall. If I don't open and forward the port on the Router to the local softether VPN server IP address. How will i...
