I have done the setup of a ipsec/l2tpd vpn server followin this tutorial http://blog.riobard.com/2010/04/30/l2tp-over-ipsec-ubuntu.
I'm able to connect to the server, and redirect all traffic through the vpn from a mac os machine.
In the remote accessed network, there is a bind dns server that the remote machines use as a local dns (they use it as a dns, and are able to access the local machines names defined there, and other Internet hosts).
The problem is that, pushing that dns to the vpn client, gives me access to the local names, but not internet host name resolution. If I push the google dns, I can get name resolution and web browsing through the vpn, but obviously, not the local name ones.
This is my options.xl2tpd file:
require-mschap-v2 ms-dns 192.168.1.3 #ms-dns 188.8.131.52 #ms-dns 184.108.40.206 asyncmap 0 auth crtscts lock hide-password modem debug name l2tpd proxyarp lcp-echo-interval 30 lcp-echo-failure 4
Traceroutes with the above config:
traceroute 192.168.1.9 traceroute to 192.168.1.9 (192.168.1.9), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets 1 10.1.2.1 (10.1.2.1) 14.823 ms 13.544 ms 14.154 ms 2 local.server.com (192.168.1.9) 13.740 ms 11.511 ms 14.794 ms traceroute google.com traceroute: unknown host google.com
Any help will be appreciated. Kind regards, Simon.
Uncommenting the second ms-dns line, makes the client work as expected under windows, but fails in mac os or iOs. Looking to make it work in apple devices.
