VPN access from android

Post by madmonkey57 » Wed Mar 20, 2013 9:32 am


I'm trying to setup a L2TP VPN connection from my android device. I am almost there...

1. Setup the VPN server, plugged to my home LAN
2. Ticked "Enable L2TP server function (L2TP over ipsec)"
3. Opened UDP 500 & 4500 ports on my ADSL router and forwarded them to my VPN server
4. I run a DHCP server on my LAN (my ADSL router actually)
5. Configured the VPN on my android phone as described in the tutorial (including forwarding routes as

The VPN connection is OK (status is indeed connected), but I can't reach (ping) none of the IPs on my LAN (Not sure if I have a proper private IP address yet... Can't figure out a way to check this on the android device...)

Any hints? In which directions do you suggest I investigate?
