10.4: Configure a secure L2TP VPN
Authored by: erikv on Jun 21, '06 01:34:56PM

Any way to tell it to listen on a specific hardware interface? (i.e. have built-in ethernet and Airport and want VPN server to listen to built-in ethernet only)

10.4: Configure a secure L2TP VPN
Authored by: isometry on Jun 22, '06 01:22:55AM

Try adding the following to your .plist, within the "com.apple.ppp.l2tp" section:

Addresses = ("192.168.10.1");

Where 192.168.10.1 is the address you want the server to listen on.

This isn't documented in the Apple Server documentation, but is referred to in the thread I referenced in the tip. I've not tested it.

10.4: Configure a secure L2TP VPN
Authored by: erikv on Jun 22, '06 09:29:16AM

Tried the above setting (added "Addresses") and the IP address of built-in ethernet (public IP address). As soon as I enable AirPort (with a private IP address inside my wireless router), VPN clients are unable to connect.

Any ideas?

I added both the internal and external IPs to "Addresses" and it now works.
