Connecting to VPN Server using Certificate on Android

Post by japan_aki » Tue Aug 10, 2021 2:28 am

Hello all,

Been trying to set up a point-to-point VPN (1 server, 1 client) using Windows 10 as server and Android phone as client.
The authentication method for the user has been set to "Individual Cert Authentication" in SoftEther Server Manager
The authentication cert is generated using SoftEther, in .p12 format
The authentication cert is also installed on the Android phone
The default vpn client on the Android phone is used to connect to the VPN server on Windows 10:
-> vpn type is "IPSEC IKEv2 RSA"
-> IPSEC user cert is the .p12 cert installed on the phone
-> IPSEC CA cert is the .p12 cert installed on the phone (added as trusted CA in SoftEther Server Manager)
-> IPSEC server cert has been set to "Received from server"

However, when connecting, the status was "unsuccessful", would like to have any inputs on if this is possible with softether or if there are any guides to connect android phone to windows server using cert

IKEv2 is not supported. You can try OpenVPN.

If that is the case would like to check if L2TP/IPSec RSA is supported
