 Subject:  Routing to a VPN on OPT interface from LAN?
 Date:  Mon, 06 Feb 2006 04:10:59 +0000
Hi all,

In a m0n0-to-m0n0 IPSec VPN, is it possible to have a VPN terminated to 
an OPT interface and yet still have the tunnel accessible from LAN?

Remote LAN is, Local LAN is, Local OPT is

The tunnel is up and running and it works correctly between Local OPT 
and Remote LAN. However, I'd like to be able to achieve some access 
to/from the Local LAN from the Remote LAN.

I've got some NAT in place to allow access to from the 
Remote LAN (via the OPT interface). I'm not sure if this is working but 
will test it when I can - this "pinhole" (both ways) is basically what I 
wish to achieve. At present, I can't seem to get any traffic to pass 
from the Local LAN to the Remote LAN via the VPN.

Is this possible? It would be very handy for my purposes. Or, failing 
that, how would you recommend I achieve this kind of setup? My current 
thoughts are towards a second interface in that will connect 
it to Local OPT (as well as Local LAN).

Any help greatly appreciated :)
