Connecting to Internet via Softether on Linux(Openwrt)

Post by BG8LRR » Mon Mar 04, 2024 6:46 am

In this network only port 8080 is allowed. I set up a Softether Server on a home server, and connected to it

After setting the priority of adapters, I can connect to Internet with the IP of the server on Windows PC.

However, when I try to set this up on my router(Openwrt/Linux), I cannot connect to the Internet.
I've created a virtual adapter and obtained IP address by using "dhclient".

I never used VPN before. so if you can help, please keep answers straightforward.

hey solo, thanks so much for your reply! There's still something I didn't get the point. In thread it says <server address> and <default GW>. I use a wireless connection, which gateway is 172.22.79.254, and connected to vpn server at 113.*.*.189. Should I exec

sudo ip route add 113.*.*.189 via 172.22.79
254

and delete default?

If so, I already tried that, didn't work :(

hi solo!
Thanks for your reply! When I come to 'netstat -tapn', I found no entry that matches my vpn gate. As field 'Program Name' says, a process with name 'vpnclient' connected to 127.0.0.1. I have no idea about the reason (never used a local proxy)

host: public-vpn-185.opengw.net
port: 443
hub: VPNGATE
user: vpn
pass: vpn

This is the 219.100.37.193 server. Use it for tests. Check on OpenWrt forum for more info.

Thank you so much! I can use internet on my router now. Now I can dive into the next problem: all lan device are not connected to internet.

Anyway, thank you so much on helping me solving this problem!
