RaspberryPi 3 with SoftEther as VPN gateway

Post by Oceanwatcher » Sat Sep 23, 2017 2:06 pm

Hi,

I am new in this forum and I have searched about my topic, but could not find any information about it.

Here is my idea:

Install Linux, Raspbian, on RaspberryPi 3. Install NTP.

Install SoftEther Client.

As SoftEther installs a virtual network adapter, I am thinking it should be possible to plug the RaspBerry into the switch and use it as a VPN gateway/router without adding another ethernet port. Just go into the network settings of any device on my network and change the IP of the gateway.

But how do I set up routing of incoming traffic on my ethernet port to the virtual VPN adapter?

Of course, the firewall needs to be adjusted.

Thank you for responding!

For now, I got as far as installing the client. Your setup is for installing Softether Server and that is a bit different, but I still think I can learn some things from your setup.

Just wish there was a way to connect a GUI to the client on Linux!
