I'm running SoftEther 4.29 as a standalone server on an iMac running macOS 10.15.2. My goal is to allow remote access to my home network via L2TP/IPSec.
I've successfully gotten L2TP/IPSec, local bridging, DHCP, and router port forwarding working. Where I'm stuck now is that, while this connection works for most services on the LAN, it won't allow clients to access services on the iMac (ssh, for example).
This problem is described here:

My interpretation of these instructions is that I need to add a second physical ethernet port to my iMac, and connect it to the LAN. Even if I had the hardware to do so (including an extra jack in the wall), this would be overkill for occasional single-user remote access.
Is there something straightforward I can do to enable VPN clients to access services on the server iMac without my needing dedicated hardware?

Bump. Any advice? I'm surprised that there's not an obvious answer, since this seems like a really common use case (want to be able to virtually join my home network while on the road, don't have dedicated hardware).
