Dear all,

The VPN is working now. It appears that the monowall will never show the
route to the other ipsec connected network. 

It would be nice to have a show route page on the main monowall page with
perhaps a small extra list with "hidden" vpn ranges. 

I noticed this when using the ping page to ping on the lan
That works, it uses the IPSEC connection. 

(a small hint on that page that you need the lan interface to ping host over
the ipsec connection would be nice)

The real problem why I could not connect to the from out the
lan segment was as follows:

The machine which I used to test was also in a other segment where it had a
wan ip with a default gw to the monowall.
That way the originator of let say a ping packet was the WAN IP and not the
ip from the lan.

So I had to add a route for to the monowall ip in the lan
segment on my test machine. 

I also changed the outbound nat rules not to nat if it was heading to ! on the WAN interface.
I don't know yet if this is needed.

Hope this helps someone. 

Or in case if I'm wrong, please let me know.

Onderwerp: [m0n0wall] RE: Monowall <-> Draytek



I'm connection two sites together using ipsec

Monowall 1.3b15 and a draytek 2910


   WAN X 



   WAN Y


  Local net   


Phase 1 & 2 are up and  currently the clients from 10.100.200.x can reach
servers at

Nice but from 172.30.1.x they cannot reach 10.100.200.x


It appears the monowall doesn't route them ,  a tracepath shows that the
monowall forwards it to the default gw instead of the VPN.



 I have entered as remote subnet

That should take care that the monowall create a route to that network ( I

But checking status.php I see no route for


Must the route be pushed from the other end ( the draytek), or did I set
something wrong on the monowall.


Setting up a static route looks like the solution, but I don't know what to
set as interface and gateway.


Any help is appreciated.
