PPPOE problems with softether

Post by slavko » Mon Jan 04, 2021 8:54 am

Hello everyone. Help please!
The softether server is installed behind the NAT. Using nat traversal. All users are connected using the native protocol by the native application (SoftEther VPN Client). Everything works great.
BUT if the user's provider ISP uses the PPPOE connection type, then the native client does not see the HUB and HUB cannot be selected in any way.
Is there a solution to this problem? Connection to the provider occurs through a WiFi router, the softether client is installed on a Windows PC.
Sorry for my English.

In HELP Docs we have a text, but what should I do...

"11.3.17 When Using a Special PPPoE Connection Tool to Connect to the Internet
If the VPN client computer you installed VPN Client to uses a special PPPoE connection tool (the most common are those distributed by ISPs, but they are not the only kind) to connect to the Internet, the routing table controlled by that software and the routing table controlled by VPN Client may conflict with each other. In this case processes like the one described in section 4.4 Making Connection to VPN Server may not function properly. If this applies to you, try using a broadband router that supports PPPoE to connect to the Internet instead of the PPPoE connection tool."
