Issue Using client VPN over Pepwave HD2


Thank you for taking some time to help me.
So, in my little network i have a Pewave HD2 (WAN and cellular connection), and local client (2 PC and 1 mobile phone).
My client can access to the Internet , there is no problem.
But, when i’m trying to connect to a remote VPN (OpenVPN server) with these clients, i can’t.

I have two questions:

  • What i have to configure on my pepwave HD 2 to succeed on ?
  • Can i configure Pepwave HD2 to use an OpenVPN (i only see option IpSec) in the settings ?

Thank a lot for your help.

Hi Box_Mobile,

Welcome to the forum!
OpenVPN is supported for remote user access to your LAN, not for site-to-site VPN connections (server mode only).

Thank your for your reply.
Ok for site-to-site vpn.

But what about a client VPN connected over Pepwave WAN or Cellular ? The connection if ok only if we don’t use a client VPN.
Are there any settings i have to modify to allow that ? Policy ? FIrewal ?

Erik is right you can’t get the HD2 to act as a OpenVPN client, but I’m surprised your clients can’t connect to an OpnVPN server. I use OpenVPN clients behind Peplink devices all the time.

Are you using any non standard OpenVPN ports?

Thanks for your help Martin.
I’m using non standard port in fact.

So, what i have to do ?

Ok. Try adding your custom ports into the Service Passthrough section (Advanced > Misc Settings | Service Passthrough) as a test.
