Dear,

i have a problem with an Archer MR600 using Iliad SIM. Internet connection works fine but VPN doesn't work.

 

I have done the following points

- enabled Dynamic Dns

- checked system time

- enabled OpenVpn service with standard parameters as indicated on the guide (Udp, port 1194, etc...)

- generated certificate + exported configuration

 

I also tried with IPSec VPN but it doesn't work anyway.

 

What could be the problem?
 
Thanks in advance

 

Best regards

 

Nicolas

@JPKR 

Good day.

I think it might be because the internet IP on the router is a private IP address, not a public one, which means there would be an additional firewall on the sim care carrier side that would block the VPN connection.

So you could have a check

Thank you!

@Sunshine I can confirm that this is the case for me, and I have an Iliad SIM too. I was actually going to create a ticket about it with the following request.

 

I'm not sure whether how common is this with other ISPs but for sure this is a big bummer for Iliad customers. Since server mode VPN won't work this way, would it be possible to support client mode instead?

 

In my case in order to make this work I had to put an old raspberrypi behind the mr600 and that acts as my VPN endpoint. This works fine but I'd rather not have to do it if possible.

 

Finally, will you guys add support for Wireguards VPNs in the future? Speed and ease of setup are incredibly convenient.

 

Thanks
