DSR-250 VPN L2TP server not working
« on: May 06, 2015, 12:30:40 PM »

Hi there,

Am trying to configure VPN L2TP server but it doesn't accept connections from MacOS 10.10 clients.
On D-Link VPN logs says: Wed May 06 15:11:06 2015 (GMT -0400): [DSR-250] [IKE] ERROR: Could not find configuration for x.x.x.x[500]
where x.x.x.x is client IP address

On Mac, system.log says:
May  6 15:10:46 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: accepted connection on vpn control socket.
May  6 15:10:46 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: Connecting.
May  6 15:10:46 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: IPSec Phase 1 started (Initiated by me).
May  6 15:10:46 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: IKE Packet: transmit success. (Initiator, Main-Mode message 1).
May  6 15:10:46 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: >>>>> phase change status = Phase 1 started by us
May  6 15:10:49 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: IKE Packet: transmit success. (Phase 1 Retransmit).
May  6 15:10:56 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: IPSec disconnecting from server y.y.y.y
May  6 15:10:56 Yosemite.local racoon[1478]: glob found no matches for path "/var/run/racoon/*.conf"
where y.y.y.y is DSR-250 wan IP address

Does anybody knows if L2TP server will work woth Mac clients?
I do have PPTP server running fine but i'd like to use L2TP

Thanks in advance!

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Review the user manual and check for configuration information and setup...

Hi,

Hardware version A2
device came with firmware 1.09B32_WW and after having this L2TP issue i did upgrade to 2.01_WW. Same behavior under both firmware versions
Canada

I did follow the manual and D-Link instructions as per
http://support.dlink.com/FAQView.aspx?f=8yH1gN7AKIs60%2bg2TpiX8Q%3d%3d

Mac client is able to connect to other L2TP VPN servers.

I tried to initiate L2TP connection from Windows 7 and it fails as well, on DSR-250, VPN log shows same error:
Thu May 07 08:00:19 2015 (GMT -0400): [DSR-250] [IKE] ERROR: Could not find configuration for z.z.z.z[58639]

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.

Yes, i did contact their support yesterday and was provided with a different approach: VPN L2TP server does require IPSec setup as per below link:
http://support.dlink.ca/FAQView.aspx?f=oIuQQtGKmU2UnWGF1MCZYg%3d%3d

This did fix my problem and now L2TP VPN server does work as expected.

Thank you for your replies!
