Question

ipsec vpn on debian 6 for road warriors

  • Posted October 28, 2013

Hi!

Just wondering, could anybody provide an instruction for setting up a working ipsec vpn server for remote clients (hiding traffic on public places like airports etc)

I tried to set things up with openswan, but couldn’t connect after setting up.

Debian is a composition of free software to form an operating system. Debian VPN best combines with OpenVPN provides an extra security layer on open networks like WI-Fi Hotspots. You need to make a decision here whether you want tun (routed) or tap (bridged) connections. The main difference is that tap will give the client a network address on the server network, whereas tun creates a private network managed by the server. <br>Debian VPN best suggested for people who use Smartphones at WI-Fi Hotspots. <br>http://www.purevpn.com/vpn-service/ipsec-vpn.php

P.S.: when I try to set up ipsec on ubuntu droplet, things work great.
