I am having a problem with iptables and a PPTP VPN, I have read related topics both on hear and online but still can't get it to work! I am trying to set up PPTP on an ubuntu server on our local network, to force clients to have to log in through the VPN to gain internet access. The ubuntu server is connected directly to the internet.

In my rc.local I have the following to forward and accept gre

# PPTP IP forwarding
sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT

This shows up in my iptables on list so I know it is there.

I use CSF on the server as my firewall, if this is disabled I can connect to the VPN and browse the internet through it, if CSF is enabled I either get "disconnected by the communication device" or I can connect but have no internet access through the VPN.

This also has the weird problem that every now and then it does seem to work through the firewall!

I have the following ports open:

TCP_IN = ...47,53,80,92,110,143,443,465,587,993,995,1723,7777..
TCP_OUT = ...47,53,80,92,110,113,443,1723,25565,7777...
UDP_IN = 20,21,47,53,1723,27015,27025
UDP_OUT = 20,21,47,53,113,123,1723,27015, 27025

Do you have any recommendations for how to fix this problem? Do you require any further information?

Many thanks for your time,

Please clarify where exactly you've got those iptables rules, where you've got CSF, and if the client and server have direct access to the internet (a link in some interface) or via a gateway. Also note you don't seem to be forwarding anything there - just allowing input and output traffic. If the MASQUERADE rule is actually needed you probably also need a FORWARD rule. –  Eduardo Ivanec Jun 4 '11 at 14:37
    
The server is directly on the internet via eth0. The client is connected to the local network only. All of this configuration is on the server, the client is a laptop. –  Pez Cuckow Jun 4 '11 at 14:54
    
Please post your full iptables -nvL and iptables -nvL -t nat. –  Eduardo Ivanec Jun 4 '11 at 14:59
    
192.168.122.0/24 is a vhost on the server. –  Pez Cuckow Jun 4 '11 at 15:10

You don't really seem to have the GRE protocol enabled, from what I can see. You have port 47 TCP allowed, but that's not the same. Your rc.local rules regarding GRE seem fine but are probably being overwritten, so add those rules in your firewall system proper.

You also have a DROP policy for forwarding packets - add this rule as a mininum:

iptables -A FORWARD -i ppp+ -j ACCEPT

This enables forwarding for all interfaces beginning with ppp, which should be enough for a PPTP-based VPN.

Also, you probably did this already but check you've enabled packet forwarding using sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward - it should be 1.

Note your packet count (first column) for TCP 1723 is 0. Try connecting and check it goes up. But enable GRE first or it won't work, of course.

Hi thanks for your time. sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward is of course 1, I have added the forward packets rule on -i ppp -0 eth0 and vise versa. I have moved my rc.local commands to csfpre.sh (which csf apparently runs after it is set up). However I am still getting stuck at "you were disconnected by the communication device" when the firewall is enabled. –  Pez Cuckow Jun 4 '11 at 15:41
    
After adding iptables -A INPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT iptables -A OUTPUT -p gre -j ACCEPT I think everything is now working! Awesome. Thanks for your help, very much appreciated! –  Pez Cuckow Jun 4 '11 at 15:44
