Does DO Gateway block returning packets in site to site IPSec VPN connections? It is possible to create this setup using droplets?

I need to setup site-to-site VPN connection to another site to transfer request to that site.

I recently tried to setup OpenVPN on my DO droplets but I failed because of the following reason:

DO hypervisors are configured to accept traffic from specific IPs originating from the droplets, these IPs are assigned to the droplet using public and private IPs.

When I contatced DO support they adviced me to use Tinc VPN as described in this tutorial please follow it and it should help you to setup the VPN, if you need any help do not be afraid to comment back on this answer or contact me on my email found in my profile page.

Hope this helps.

Hey friend,

If the packets spoof the origin then they are dropped, but otherwise there are no limitations on our network. Dropping spoofed traffic is really important to us, anything else is fair game. Hope that helps :)
