Connect to VPN Server through the VPN

Post by marche » Tue Jan 08, 2019 8:24 am

Is it possible to remotely connect to the VPN Server (and change settings) whilst connected through the VPN itself? It seems I cannot ping the server (in this case a raspberry pi) when I am connected to itself through SoftEther. I cant even SSH into the RPi. Is it possible to enable this?

You can't access the same IP address which SE listening on on unix-liked kernels. And Raspberry is not an exception to this. You could do it on Windows-based machines.

SoftEther VPN Server Manager can connect to the remote VPN server with listening TCP port of the VPN server.

Im thinking you need to use the local loopback address (127.0.0.1) to ssh in. You also might need to change a setting in /etc/ssh/sshd_config to accept local loopback. Dont quote me on that though.
