Only can connect via Windows - Mac doesn't work.

Post by jrwilde » Mon Mar 23, 2020 2:30 pm

Hello There.

Pls a help.

I was create a SoftEther VPN server Windows. My goal is that client open shared folders on this server.

Using Windows Client, it's working fine. Windows Client can connect VPN Server (using Softether client app) - I can access server and shared folders.


But, I'm trying use a MAC Client without success. I'm using native vpn connecion from mac as soon as recomnended. Every time that I try connect my VPN Server, show the message ' The L2TP-VPN server did not respond.' (tested 2 macs - OSX 10.15.3 and 10.12.6)

I setup L2TP, enabling L2TP Server Function on VPN server.
I followed all docs, and have same issue. I tried change configuration for couple times, no success.



Any idea?

PS: I need enable EtherIP/L2TPv3 over IPsec Server funcion? If so, Pls, let me understand what I need setup over Detail Settings.

Thanks in advanced

Did you Forward UDP ports 4500 & 500 to SE server Host? See bottom of the following link.

Hey buddy.


I just opened on windows firewall 4500 and 500 udp. (my vpn server) It was not forwarding.

Now, I setup my router and create rules to forwarding 500 and 4500 upd ports for my VPN Server.

I have the same issue. MAC still not connecting.

Tnx!
