Question

I tried to do a search on the forum and got no results. Does anyone know how to get L2TPC VPN to work on Bodhi? I have installed xl2tpd but I do not get the VPN option in network manager.

Maybe this helps? http://riobard.com/2010/04/30/l2tp-over-ipsec-ubuntu/

I just did this search https://duckduckgo.com/?q=L2TPC+ubuntu&t=bodhi&ia=web

and everything mentions ipsec as well as l2tp because l2tp doesn't encrypt anything. Because bodhi is based on ubuntu, you should be able to utilize at least one of the links from the search.

I had already tried all of those on a ubuntu 16.4 and never could get it to work. So I'm guessing this will be the issue on Bodhi as well. At least in ubuntu I did get the network managers to see a vpn setup and configuration.

Have you tried vpn connections in network-manager after adding the packages 'network-manager-openvpn' & 'network-manager-vpnc' ?

 

I have little experience using VPN's, so I could be off base if this isn't what you're looking for.

I use vpn services from time to time. The connections are all done with openvpn. l2tp is a different beast from the little reading I did.

This has guided me somewhat. I now get a rejection on user name and password as below. I cant figure out why its not looking at the config file.

 

ipsec up L2TP-PSK
initiating IKE_SA L2TP-PSK[1] to x.x.x.x
generating IKE_SA_INIT request 0 [ SA KE No N(NATD_S_IP) N(NATD_D_IP) N(HASH_ALG) ]
sending packet: from 192.168.2.6[500] to x.x.x.x[500] (1500 bytes)
received packet: from x.x.x.x[500] to 192.168.2.6[500] (38 bytes)
parsed IKE_SA_INIT response 0 [ N(INVAL_KE) ]
peer didn't accept DH group MODP_2048, it requested MODP_1024
initiating IKE_SA L2TP-PSK[1] to x.x.x.x
generating IKE_SA_INIT request 0 [ SA KE No N(NATD_S_IP) N(NATD_D_IP) N(HASH_ALG) ]
sending packet: from 192.168.2.6[500] to x.x.x.x[500] (1372 bytes)
received packet: from x.x.x.x[500] to 192.168.2.6[500] (316 bytes)
parsed IKE_SA_INIT response 0 [ SA KE No N(NATD_S_IP) N(NATD_D_IP) ]
local host is behind NAT, sending keep alives
remote host is behind NAT
authentication of '192.168.2.6' (myself) with pre-shared key
establishing CHILD_SA L2TP-PSK
generating IKE_AUTH request 1 [ IDi N(INIT_CONTACT) IDr AUTH N(USE_TRANSP) SA TSi TSr N(MOBIKE_SUP) N(NO_ADD_ADDR) N(EAP_ONLY) ]
sending packet: from 192.168.2.6[4500] to x.x.x.x[4500] (380 bytes)
received packet: from x.x.x.x[4500] to 192.168.2.6[4500] (68 bytes)
parsed IKE_AUTH response 1 [ N(AUTH_FAILED) ]
received AUTHENTICATION_FAILED notify error
establishing connection 'L2TP-PSK' failed
 
So it looks more promising then before.
