L2TP mobile DHCP error

Post by sanketgroup » Tue May 01, 2018 2:12 pm

I am trying to connect my Android mobile to softether server.

But I am getting following error.
L2TP PPP Session : Acquiring an IP address from the DHCP server failed. To accept a PPP session, you need to have a DHCP server. Make sure that a DHCP server is working normally in the Ethernet segment which the Virtual Hub belongs to. If you do not have a DHCP server, you can use the Virtual DHCP function of the SecureNAT on the Virtual Hub instead.

DHCP in my network(On which local bridge) is already ON.
Also, other Site-to-site windows pc clients are able to connect to Server and those clients (devices behind remote Clients) are able to get DHCP.
Only mobile user over L2TP are havinh issue.
SecuteNAT is disabled and LocalBridge is setup.

Please help to resolve this.

What OS do you use for the VPN server?

Does the Android fail to get the IP address every time or some time?
