VPN Connects but no network access

Post by peted » Wed May 15, 2019 9:01 am

Hi, We have a softether VPN server set up on unbuntu 16.04. It has two interfaces, one on the DMZ which the firewall port forwards to and then one on the LAN.

Client are able to connect to the VPN and they are being issued a DHCP IP address from the DHCP server on the LAN, but the clients have no network access at all.

This was fully working and has been for over a year. we recently upgraded our VM server and this server was moved from the old server to the new esxi server. All other servers that moved has not experience any network issues. but since the move it has just not worked.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I assume you are using the "local bridge" feature of SE and your clients are getting their IP address from your physical DHCP server.

If so verify that "Promiscuous Mode" is enabled on the virtual LAN interface within ESXI.
