LRT224 with IPSEC Problem - Not

[ Edited ]

Hi, I have the following Router LRT224 Linksys.

 

I want to configure the IPSEC tunnel (by user or group).

 

The OpenVpn works fine for the users but it is limited to 5! That's why I want more VPN Tunnel.

So I've configured the IPSEC tunnel and I am connecting fine either by Tunnel, either by Group VPN.

 

The problem is :

- Client cannot ping the network

 

- LRT224 /VPN :

        Summary Information see always waiting for connection for Tunnel and the IPSEC Client (Schrew) is well connected, in the log i Have (c2gips1)[2] IP:660 #61: [Tunnel Established] ISAKMP SA established

 

-when I use the Group VPN, I can see the client connected but i could not ping from the client to the Router/Subnet network and vice versa

 

In the Advanced Routing, I can see the IP from the client connected...

 

I use also the doc http://support.linksys.com/en-eu/support/business/LRT224 ..

in the schrew VPN configuration of the network i put :

Auto Config: Disabled and Use an existing adapter and current address

 

please let me know... help!! thank you

I've configured OpenVPN and Gateway to Gateway IPSec but not Client to Gateway IPSec.

 

I will do some testing with the Windows Client and post results.

Re: LRT224 with IPSEC Problem - Not

I did some testing and think this is awesome. With this feature you can have an addition 45 VPN tunnels as you mention. I tested with two devices connected at the same time though different IPSec tunnels and both were able to ping devices on the remote LAN.

 

Equipment used:

  1. LRT224
  2. Windows 7 x64 Desktop
  3. HP Stream 7 Tablet
  4. LAPN300
  5. Galaxy S4

VPN Client:

  1. Shew Soft VPN Client for Windows
  2. Shew how to instructions

The print screen and detailed step by step process make the shrewsoft vpn client configuration much easier to follow.

Nice one Chadster766.

Re: LRT224 with IPSEC Problem - Not

I'm having the same problem and I went through the same steps and verified both end point configurations..... and still can't ping through to the subnet nodes from a connected client.....

 

I started a new topic: https://community.linksys.com/t5/Linksys-Small-Business/LRT224-VPN-client-2-Gateway-Connected-but-ca...

 

I've followed these steps also:

Re: LRT224 with IPSEC Problem - Not

yes, I did, the vpn connection connects, but then I can't ping through beyond the VPN router.

 

from the other topic: (https://community.linksys.com/t5/Linksys-Small-Business/LRT224-VPN-client-2-Gateway-Connected-but-ca...

I've got a client-gateway group VPN tunnel setup and configured, I connect from windows to the tunnel using shrew client it connects and I can ping the LAN side of the router, but nothing beyond (laptops servers, etc.)  How do I connect the tunnel to the LAN?  seems like I'm missing som routing/forwarding piece for the tunnel...

 

I can ping the remote subnet from the LRT224 using the Maintenance tab. but I can't ping through from a VPN connected host anything on that subnet except the LRT224 address on that subnet.

Re: LRT224 with IPSEC Problem - Not

I tried to setup the same VPN with an iPhone as the client and did not have the same luck.  Any ideas?
