Road Warrior Remote access from server

Post by Demusman » Thu May 26, 2022 1:36 am

Hello,
Is there a way to have a remote access server access the remote network?
I can vpn into a server and access anything on the server LAN but nothing on the server LAN can access the remote network.
A peer to peer works fine but wondering if there's a way to use a remote access.
From what I see nothing is added to the server route table when remote access is used.
I tried adding the 'route {remote net} {remote mask}' (using pfsense) to the advanced settings and the route is added to the table but still can't get to the remote network.

This is just for testing and my own curiosity.

Yup, that's exactly the answer I expected from this forum.

Ok, we will delete all the help text and howtos and guides and tutorials, because you are too lazy to read them.
