Question

Does Digital Ocean's VPS hosting supports VPN behind NAT

I want to purchase a Vps from digital ocean, i want to set up this Vps as an ipsec VPN client… Here is the usage scenario I need to connect to my partner’s network, the connection must go through a VPN tunnel ( IPSEC protocol ) to be specific. The configuration will be site to site VPN. I am looking to set up a site to site IPSEC vpn connection to my partner’s network. I will be using strong swan or open swan as my ipsec client.

Can i achieve this with Digital ocean’s vps ?without buying hardware vpn routers ?

Yes, that’s possible to setup. Doing double VPN connections is always a little tricky to configure correctly.

And as for VPN routers, most of them are simply running OpenVPN/StrongSwan, so there’s no magic there - usually just a graphical interface with a wizard.
