Trouble Connecting to a Freenas server through vpn

Post by rielt12 » Sun Mar 25, 2018 1:53 am

Hello,

I have a home network where a Freenas server is operating a VPN softether server.
I am trying to VPN into my home network from away and SSH into my Freenas server.

I set up my Freenas server as a VPN with this guide.
https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?th ... vpn.47395/
I can successfully connect to the VPN remotely from another network.

However when I try and SSH or Putty into my Freenas server, I cannot when I am connected to VPN.

I have tried setting my subnet masks to be different on my home network.
I have also tried making sure my Freenas's default gateway was set.

When I try to ping my Freenas server, while connected to VPN, I get:

Reply from <softether IP adress> : Destination host unreachable.

There is limitation in FreeBSD.

Please add one more NIC on the Freenas.
