Unable to connect via mobile 4G router

Post by Anno » Sun May 12, 2019 5:46 pm

I am not able to connect my softether client to the softether vpn server when I am sitting on a mobile Internet connection.

Does anybody know why?

When I am sitting on a adsl Internet connection anything works perfect.

Somebody told me it is because that the mobile 4G connection has no public IP address.

Maybe there is some settings in the Softether server or client to avoid this?

Does anybody know?

But the server side has a public IP address.

But when I am sitting on the client computer and trying to logon to the Softether server and the Internet connection is a mobil 4G connection I can not connect

when I am using a ADSL Internet connection from the same client computer it works.

yes, the same problem

ask your ISP what the f*** they block, it must be the same for me

for me is enough to use sim card from another provider - then it works

Do not drink too much......

I spent today more time testing more different SIM cards for internet:

1- Slovak O2 sim - can not work with public IP, but in "normal mode" SE client works perfect
of course can not be used for server

2- Austrian T-mobile - normal mode = nothing works! /not server not client/
public IP mode = both server and client work with it

3- Austrian Yesss - exactly the same as point 2

4- Austrian Drei 3 - in normal mode client works, server of course not
not tested in public IP mode - probably not possible
seems to be as point 1

IS IT CLEAR NOW? F***** ISP PROVIDERS! No magic settings in server

Hello there,

Let me add some info. I have SAME problem as OP.

I have 4 server set-up. All are the SAME settings, but on different ISPs and locations.

1)Azure WIN server
2)Tmobile ISP WIN server
3)O2 ISP WIN server
4)UPC ISP WIN server

Only LTE routers cannot connect to the server.
They CAN connect to #1 and #2, but they CANNOT connect to #3 and #4.

Mobile hotspot works well on vodafone, tmobile, o2. But those Huaweii Bxxx routers from vodafone not work for all. Only some.

I can connct here, but not there. WHY? same question. No different settings.

Tried things like different ports, ask for blocks by ISP (but some server work, as I said), change router (server-side), change encryption (connection to MTU problems), different authentication.

Even tried set the 4G router to WAN mode (ethernet), then it WORKS. But not on 4G (2 of 4 servers with same setup).


We really need a solution for this :))

Solution is to use internet

Not to use cripled service based on internet

We should not pay for this!

Yes, also for me it is hard to understand why the Softether Server denies logon from Softether clients
when the open https protocol 443 is used.

Too many requests on port 443 from client? Do they count them?

Some tools from SE would be welcome to see how far logging in proceeded....

For me it seems the connection is established but immediately drops down


Softether server is not denying logon - the packets from client do not reach server

Well, from same connection, it works towards one SE server, but not to the another one.
Then it should not be provider problem? If it was, it would be problem to all servers (I can test to different SE servers, that's why I don't believe it is by 4G provider)..

I'm not using 443 for it (but I have tried of course).

I can confirm nothing shows up in server logs - the connection does not get there.

It throws error 1, no connection.

But when it works from the same connection to one Softether server but not to another Softether server

What is then the different between the two servers?

That's the question :) trying to find out, but no luck.

It seems (but it's really only theory), that in some combination it does not work.
The combination means "huawei + vodafone 4G ISP on client side and o2 with huawei "pre-router" on server side" .... when you put out anything from this, it will work:D if you switch isp or device on client, it works. if you connect ethernet wan instead of 4G, it works (same shit router). if you put server behind different connection, it works.

I would need take one server to the location of the other which works to try last option as I have said above :D

I'm desperate, because I would say "it's ISP problem, it just will not work"... But I can see it works somewhere, so there must be a wayyyyyyyyy

Here we try to find out problem from client side - no need port forwarding, it is something else

Can you put any of sim cards into public ip regime? For me it then works

I think, as it is phone number based a lot of people have the same ip address

When you go into public regime then you have uniqe ip address alone, even if it is not necessary for client

Hi, same problem with connexion via sim card smarthphone.
When using an ethernet (ADSL) it works.

Steal when I use the same Sim card with a Huwei (8 lite) phone, it works !!!!
when i use the same sim card with a xiaomi ( mi max 3) it doesn't ????

The idea is in smartphone something that doesn't support SOFETHER VPN ??


Maybe i should root my smarthphone ??

NB. the phone here is just sharing the internet connexion with a windows PC softether VPN client.

You described your problem like retarded person, I doubt anybody understands what is your problem...

root phone does not solve anything, just access for you...
What is server wh is client?
You have to describe your hardware

You don't have to answer anything her if you think I described the problem like retarded person.

People in here try to describe what they discover in the best way.

if you only have negativ commend and you can't say anything good, just leave without comment.

I at least explained about rooting the phone - what was possible to answer.

But I do not see any positive explanation from you on described (for me unsufficiently) problem?

If he needs help he must explain clearly:

- how was server connected to internet
- how was client connected to internet
- where he used SIM cards? server or client?
