I am trying to setup a VPN server in Microsoft Azure to use for private/secure browsing. I found many tutorials on how to setup L2TP/IPSec on Windows Server and I was able to set it up and connect to it. However, I think I am missing a few steps to make client internet traffic go through the VPN server.

All the tutorials I found are work-related VPNs so they're not mentioning those extra steps. I think it has something to do with enabling NAT but I am not exactly sure what to do.

If anyone can provide any tutorials or give me guides/hints on what to do for setting up L2TP/IPSec on Windows (or linux) for the purpose of private/secure browsing would be great!



Disclosure: I am the author of this GitHub repository.

Please see Setup IPsec VPN for a "one-click" IPsec VPN server setup script intended for use on Ubuntu, Debian or CentOS, for the purpose of private/secure browsing. Additionally, you may refer to Deploy to Microsoft Azure as well as Configure IPsec/L2TP VPN Clients from the same repository.

  • Thanks, i will try it out tomorrow and report back here. – Alaa Masoud Sep 23 '16 at 2:58
