Cannot connect to VPN Host.

Post by fred1s2 » Sun Aug 20, 2017 6:11 am

Hi,

I've just setup my VPN however I am struggling to connect to the VPN host through ssh and other ports.
I did a search however I do not really understand the solution, it appears I have to bridge between the real network adapter and a virtual one however I do not understand how I do this?
Thanks for your help.

I needed to route only certain subnets so I came with the following solution: ssh tunnel + redsocks + iptables. Redsocks opens interface which forwards traffic through ssh. And you can easily create iptables rules for the subnets you're interested in.

Could you show detail how did you configure the VPN server?
What OS did you use?
