Internet access in cluster mode

Post by maxime » Tue May 10, 2022 9:06 pm

I'm testing a cluster configuration and I can't figure out why my users stop having access with dynamic/DHCP hubs.

In standalone, I have a virtual hub with SecureNAT/DHCP enabled. Clients connect to the VPN and the "0.0.0.0/0" routes work through the HUB. I then switch the server to a controller (with VPN traffic enabled) and I test two different combinations:
1) In static mode, the bridge to the local adapter is operational, but without DHCP the users never get an IP.
2) In dynamic mode, I enable DHCP as I figured it was the missing piece. Users get assigned an IP but do not have access to the internet.

Am I missing something in the jump from a standalone to a cluster setup?

Dynamic hub is designed for interconnection between clients, not for internet access.

So the only configuration that would support the use case is standalone mode, scale out with new servers as the demand grows?

Remote access VPN with internet access through the VPN. The aim is both added privacy, but also inter-connection with the users. Think typical nordvpn-like services but where users are able to connect to each other on the virtual LAN.
