I have some problems with my PPTP VPN server on Debian 7 x86. I'm mainly using Windows clients to connect to the VPN and this works. The VPN connection from client to server works, because in the client (
10.5.5.10) I can access all services that are on the server (
However, if I try to access another client (e.g.
10.5.5.11) from my client
10.5.5.10, I get a timeout with
ping. This means I can't access any client from another client. The strange thing is that I still can access the web server on
If I try the same thing on my server (
ping 10.5.5.10), it also gives a timeout, which means the server isn't able to see the clients at all, so that is probably the reason why clients are not able to connect to each other. In my VPN however, I need clients connecting to each other.
In my server configuration I defined the following:
option /etc/ppp/pptpd-options logwtmp localip 10.5.5.5 remoteip 10.5.5.10-254
These are the contents of my
name pptpd refuse-pap refuse-chap refuse-mschap require-mschap-v2 require-mppe-128 proxyarp nodefaultroute lock ms-dns 126.96.36.199 ms-dns 188.8.131.52 nobsdcomp noipx mtu 1490 mru 1490
There are no rules in my
iptables firewall. I think the issue has to do something with routing, but I have no clue how to solve the problem. Thanks in advance!
