Remote User Access to server


#1

Can I use the “Remote User Access” function to offer clients access to a macOS server?

So far I can only use this function to offer VPN web browsing but how to I offer access to resources on the network?

Hi,

I am assuming the “resources on the network” is referring to servers or printers on the LAN side of the Peplink router. If this is the case, the “Remote User Access” either PPTP or L2TP with IPsec will allow the remote clients accessing to the “resources on the network”.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and regards.

Thanks for your reply.
But I can’t see them.
What do I need to setup other then the remote access?

Hi,

A remote user connecting via a PPTP or L2TP VPN should be granted access to “resources” on the LAN they are connecting to. Please try:

1.) Verify a remote user can connect via a PPTP or L2TP VPN
2.) Once connected, attempt to ping a “resource” on the LAN that will respond to pings
– If you cannot ping the resource there is no connectivity to it
---- Perform a trace route to identify where the problem exists
3.) If you can ping it but not “access” the “resource” check your permissions for the remote user

For additional support please feel free to open a support ticket here.

Thank you.

Thanks for your reply!
I tested to the best of my capabilities.
The VPN connection to my Mac has been established but that’s it.
Also when I lookup my IP address it is still showing my own location rather then the peplink router 500 miles away from here. I tried with and without send all traffic.

Will open a ticket

VPN doesnt work with VLANs as far i have tested. I works fine if the untagged or the native network is given access and then inter-vlan routing enabled.
