Strongswan VPN basic network configuration
I’ve set up a Ubuntu 16.04 vps and fired up a Strongswan VPN. I managed to connect to the VPN with Windows client as well with my DVR with GSM modem.
When I hit ipconfig on windows client amont others I get:
PPP adapter DO VPN:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IPv4 Address… … … . . : 10.10.10.1
Subnet Mask … … … . . : 255.255.255.255
Default Gateway … … … : 0.0.0.0
Also, when visitng whatismyip I get my VPSs IP address so routing is working fine.
What I actually want to do is to have access to other clients on the VPN network. Is that at all possible cause I got confused?
When I try to ping my windows client vpn address 10.10.10.1 from the server I get nothing:
root@ubuntu-s-1vcpu-1gb-fra1-01:~# ping 10.10.10.1
PING 10.10.10.1 (10.10.10.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

Is is something with configuration or maybe you have to connect server as a client as well? As you can see I am begginner here.
Thanks a lot,
