SoftEther client within Linux Deploy

Post by forestDwelr » Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:06 am

I am running ubuntu bionic under Linux Deploy on Android nougat (Tegra K1 chipset). I have built softether from source and the compile/config & client connection startup show no errors. However, although connection seems to succeed i am unable to access the vpn network (can still see local network & internet) ...
1. Is there some fundamental reason why this can't work?
2. If not, how to debug?

Other info:
-For reference, i have a native ubuntu bionic install on a laptop (on the same network), which connects just fine. Softether version and NIC/account setup are identical between the two. 'ifconfig' output of running NIC is identical. netstat output looks identical for vpnclient entries (except for differences in dynamically assigned port numbers). List of installed cyphers is also identical.
-No firewall on either ubuntu or android host.

One more comment:

Reading around other posts related to VM's etc it looks like making a bridge between softether and the dummy device setup by linux deploy would be a good place to start. However, when i tried to do this it fails because the kernel is compiled without CONFIG_BRIDGE.
It's probably not worthwhile to try and recompile the kernel (especially just as a guess) - any non-bridge ideas?

A while back I installed and ran SoftEther on a Android cell phone using Linux Deploy and Busy Box. Here is a link to a post i made on it. Maybe your settings in linux deploy arent right read over my post and see if you can find a answer to your issue. I was kinda noob to linux when I wrote it, but I was able to figure it out, even though half the time I had no idea what I was talking about. (you'll see if you read it)

Here is another post I wrote a couple years ago on how to set up softether client. maybe your missing something. some of the things at the end aren't necessary with some versions of Ubuntu. But maybe you will find your answer.
