openVPN or IPSec/L2tp Setup

  • Posted October 21, 2012

Hello, I was wondering if you could add an article and/or tutorial on how to setup a VPN tunnel with openvnp or with IPSec/L2TP. I have been playing around with openvpn and still can’t make it work properly. I have also spent alot of time trying to make a VPN tunnel using IPSec and L2TP and that is also not work.

I think having a tutorial would be great. I have followed many different guides found online but none of them seem to work properly.

Without any previous experience with setting up VPN, I used the script below. It was ready in less than 5 minutes. :) <br> <br> <br> <br>1. Launch a new 512MB droplet. I used Debian x86. <br>2. I am using port 443 instead of the default port 1194, port 53 as backup. <br>3. Downloaded the certificates created. <br>4. I am using Tunnelblick OSX client for OpenVPN. <br> <br>5. It works great! <br>

Hello, <br>L2TP/IPSec tutorial <br> <br> <br>if you need any help with this just email me I have a lot of vpn servers I’m running OpenVPN, PPTP, and L2TP/IPSec <br>

Based on & vitobotta <br>But, still can’t run l2tp / openswan base on my server. <br> <br>

Any word on the openVPN tutorial? Really want to try this out myself

Unfortunately we do not currently have a tutorial for that.

And how about Openswan do you have a tutorial, becouse I’m trying to make a site-to-site VPN tunnel of my droplet and one pfsense firewall. <br>Do you have a tutorial for this?

To tide you over, I know people who swear by this walkthough:

I’m waiting for one tutorial to how setup a VPN connection too.

I’ll put in a vote on this as well. Always looking for a great guide for setting up openVPN.
