Hi Folks,

I setup my PPTP VPN Server on FreeBSD using the configuration on this thread:
Code:
http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=15313

For the first time, I tried connecting to my server from an iPod Touch.
But it refuses to connect. When I saw the logs, I got:
Code:
$ tail -f /var/log/messages

Apr 11 17:20:05 t5r9 kernel: tun1: link state changed to DOWN


Then I found this http://poptop.sourceforge.net/dox/qna.html:
Code:
Cannot determine ethernet address for proxy ARP

This is due to an issue with the pppd program, which attempts to find a hardware interface on 
the subnet to which the pppd client has been assigned. In this case its looking for a hardware 
interface on the 192.168.5.0 subnet. It will fail to find one, and will drop the proxyarp 
request.

The simplest way around this problem, and the one that is suggested in the pppd documentation, 
is to set the pppd client IP assignment to be on the local subnet. An example in this case might 
be 192.168.56.129. However, it may not be possible to do that. In the case of a fully loaded 
subnet, there may not be any addresses to spare. Or there may be some security issues with 
giving out local subnet addresses. What to do?

The place to look is in the arp table. If you run tcpdump on host (192.168.56.12) during the 
time when client is pinging, you will see unanswered arp requests from host attempting to find 
the hardware address for 192.168.5.12. You need to proxy the hardware address of the pptp_srvr 
for client in order for this request to be fulfilled. This is the job of proxyarp. However, 
proxyarp has let us down in this instance, and we need to find a workaround.

This can be done manually using the arp command on pptp_srvr. For example, if the ethernet card 
on pptp_srvr is eth0, you could force the arp to proxy the client pptp address by saying


	arp --use-device --set 192.168.5.12 eth0 pub
You should now be able to ping from client to host through the pptp connection.

This can be a problem, however, in a dynamic environment when clients are logging into and out 
of the pptp server on a continuous basis. One way around this problem is to write a script that 
will execute upon the initiation of each ppp connection.

The place to do this is in /etc/ppp/ip-up. This script is executed each time a new ppp 
connection is started. It gets some variables passed into it, one of which is the assigned IP 
address of the client. Note that Red Hat systems use ip-up.local as the place for you to make 
the script. Don't forget to chmod +x !

#!/bin/sh

REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS=$5

date > /var/run/ppp-${REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS}.up
arp --use-device --set $REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS eth0 pub >> /var/run/ppp-${REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS}.up

exit 0
This should put you in business for accessing the remote subnet under this scenario. A 
corresponding ip-down.local script, that will remove the arp proxy when client disconnected, 
looks as follows:

#!/bin/sh

REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS=$5

arp --delete $REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS --device eth0 pub
rm -f /var/run/ppp-${REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS}.up

exit 0

As it suggests I created /etc/ppp/ip-up and /etc/ppp/ip-down. Even /etc/ppp/ip-down.local and /etc/ppp/ip-up.local. But there is no luck. :(

I cannot be of any help with net/poptop.

I only would like to let you know, that I managed to setup a PPTP-VPN server at my FreeBSD 8.2 machine utilizing net/mpd5, that works perfectly together with my iPhone and my Macs. It was quite easy to set up. I could offer some help in setting up PPTP and L2TP/IPsec VPN servers using mpd5.

Best regards

Rolf

Sorry for the delay in replying to the post, I was very busy with a project. I'll be very thankful if you share your MPD5 configuration and steps you take (in order to make it work), with me.

Thanks in advance.

Setting up PPTP-VPN using mpd5

NuLL3rr0r said:
... share your MPD5 configuration and steps you take (in order to make it work)...

Hello!

If not already done, install net/mpd5:
[CMD=""]cd /usr/ports/net/mpd5; make install clean[/CMD]

Change to the configuration directory, and create/edit some files:
[CMD=""]cd /usr/local/etc/mpd5[/CMD]

Instead of nano, you may want to use your preferred editor for this
[CMD=""]cp mpd.secret.sample mpd.secret; nano mpd.secret[/CMD]
Code:
#################################################################
#
#       MPD secrets file
#
# This file contains login, password pairs, called "secrets".
# Entries are used for authentication in either or both directions,
# as well as telnet console login.
#
# For example, to use the "MyLogin" secret, use this command:
#
#       set bundle authname MyLogin
#
# Each entry may have a third field containing an IP address range
# specifying the allowable address assignments for that # peer.
#
# NOTE: this file should not be readable by anyone except root!
#
# $Id: mpd.secret.sample,v 1.2 2007/01/27 13:28:44 amotin Exp $
#
#################################################################

MyLogin         MyPassword
PeerLogin       PeerPassword

fred            "fred-pw"
joe             "foobar"        192.168.1.1
bob             "\x34\"foo\n"   192.168.1.10/24
sal             "yipee"         192.168.1.254

Here you basically setup the credentials for the administrator of mpd5 (MyLogin/MyPassword) and for the users who may connect to the VPN service (PeerLogins/PeerPasswords). For example my entries look roughly like this:
Code:
super      "pwSuper"
rolf       "pwRolf"
thomas     "pwThomas"
alex       "pwAlex"
anna       "pwAnna"
etc        "pwEtc"

Remember the login-id of the admin user (in the above example super, because you need this in the next step, i.e. creation and editing the principal configuration file. You could start with a copy of mpd.conf.sample, however this contains configurations for a lot of different operation modes of mpd5. So, I suggest, to create a new file, and copy my configuration suggestion below into it. You might want to review the file mpd5.conf.sample at some point in time later, though.

[CMD=""]nano mpd.conf[/CMD]

Code:
startup:
        # configure mpd users
        set user super pwSuper admin
        # configure the console
        set console self 127.0.0.1 5005
        set console open
        # configure the web server
        set web self 0.0.0.0 5006
        set web open


default:
        load pptp_server

pptp_server:
# Define dynamic IP address pool.
        set ippool add pool_pptp 192.168.0.150 192.168.0.199

# Create clonable bundle template named B_pptp
        create bundle template B_pptp
        set iface enable proxy-arp
        set iface enable tcpmssfix
        set ipcp yes vjcomp
# Specify IP address pool for dynamic assigment.
        set ipcp ranges 192.168.0.1/24 ippool pool_pptp
        set ipcp dns 192.168.0.1
# The five lines below enable Microsoft Point-to-Point encryption
# (MPPE) using the ng_mppc(8) netgraph node type.
        set bundle enable compression
        set ccp yes mppc
        set mppc yes e40
        set mppc yes e128
        set mppc yes stateless

# Create clonable link template named L_pptp
        create link template L_pptp pptp
# Set bundle template to use
        set link action bundle B_pptp
# Multilink adds some overhead, but gives full 1500 MTU.
        set link enable multilink
        set link no pap chap eap
        set link enable chap
        set link keep-alive 0 0
# We reducing link mtu to avoid GRE packet fragmentation.
        set link mtu 1448
# Configure PPTP
        set pptp self 192.168.0.1
        set pptp enable always-ack
# Allow to accept calls
        set link enable incoming

The above setup assumes that the local network is 192.168.0.0/24, and that the PPTP-VPN host has the IP 192.168.0.1. Furthermore, an IP range from 192.168.0.150 to 192.168.0.199 is reserved for VPN.

"set iface enable proxy-arp" is required, if VPN clients are allowed to connect to other machines in- and outside of your local network. If VPN clients should be restricted to services of the VPN host only, then remove this setting. By default, proxy-arp is disabled.

In my setup the VPN host, hosts also the DNS server. If you have another DNS, change "set ipcp dns 192.168.0.1" accordingly. Of course, this would mean also that proxy-arp should be enabled, since otherwise, VPN clients cannot connect to another DNS.

Enable mpd in /etc/rc.conf
Code:
mpd_enable="YES"

Make sure, that your firewall is open for 1723 TCP and 47 GRE.

Finally, start mpd5 by:
[CMD=""]service mpd5 start[/CMD]

Check, if everything is working, and eventually restart the machine.

Hopefully this helps.

Best regards

Rolf

I can setup pure l2tp server and pure ipsec server on FreeBSD 8.2 .
But I don't know how to setup l2tp/ipsec server using mpd5 and ipsec-tools together.

Can you give my some document?

Thanks

Yeah, this is quite a big write-up. Please give me some time for carefully completing this. I promise that I will submit this to the Howto-Forum by the end of this weekend.

Many thanks for your patience.

Best regards

Rolf

PS: I just submitted the promised howto. See here Howto set up a L2TP/IPsec VPN Dial-In Server.

I was been busy for a while and forgot about this VPN thing until today I saw an email about this thread in my inbox. You're guide is very very straight forward. It just took less than 10 minutes to build mpd5 and set it up using your guide. And on first try it simply worked on both Android and iOS.
I'm using SSH Tunnel on Android (never using VPN), but my friends are using iOS (they just have VPN option since setting up SSH Tunnel on iOS is a little complicated thing to do) and they are saying thanks too. You saved us from a lot of trouble.

Thanks again. :)

I'm trying to route all my internet traffic from my iPad through my FreeBSD box. So it seems PPTP-VPN could do the trick. However my problem with these instructions is that my FreeBSD server doesn't host the DNS server. And the router that it uses doesn't accept other clients. Any tips how to adjust for this situation?

I am not sure if I got that correctly.

So, please clarify:

1) - The router does not accept other DNS traffic than from/to your FreeBSD box, but passes everything else?
2) - The router does not accept ANY other traffic than from/to your FreeBSD box?

In the first case, you may want to try adjusting a public DNS, e.g. 8.8.8.8 in /usr/local/etc/mpd5:

Code:
...
set iface enable proxy-arp
...
set ipcp dns 8.8.8.8
...

Also make sure that IP forwarding is enabled on your server; in file /etc/sysctl.conf:

Code:
...
net.inet.ip.forwarding=1
net.inet6.ip6.forwarding=1
...

In case 2, I have no good idea.

Let me try to explain better.
I'm using a VPS and my provider provided me with a fixed IP (xx.150.50.120) for my VPS, a gateway (xx.150.50.1) and two DNS server addresses that I can use.
The problem is that I'm not sure what IP address pool to use and/or which DNS server.
I have tried several combinations, including your suggestion for a public DNS server.
I can from the outside access the console via telnet.
Also, in /etc/rc.conf I have set gateway_enable="YES"
In the log I see the following when I try to connect with my iPad:
