ipsec Remote access L2tp connection - not able to access from client to remote server vyatta

Hi ,


I have configured L2tp / ipsec Remote access VPN on vyatta5400 router , I am able to establish l2tp connection and client user can be seen conneted on vpn status , however I am unable to ping or ssh from client window7 host ip ( asigned after connecting to remote access vpn ) to reach destination ip ,

I am able to ping remote-address x.x.x.x .


Strange thing is server i log in and can ing but vice versa is not happening .

Is remote-nexthop command required , i have added it and name server also .


what could be the issue to look into , any chnges at client host ip to be made ?


exact similar config done . no firewall port is blocked .

set vpn ipsec ipsec-interfaces interface <OUTSIDE PUBLIC INT>
set vpn ipsec nat-traversal enable
set vpn ipsec nat-networks allowed-network

set vpn l2tp remote-access outside-address <OUTSIDE PUBLIC IP>
set vpn l2tp remote-access client-ip-pool start <x.x.x.x>
set vpn l2tp remote-access client-ip-pool stop <x.x.x.x>

set vpn l2tp remote-access ipsec-settings authentication mode pre-shared-secret
set vpn l2tp remote-access ipsec-settings authentication pre-shared-secret <passphrase>
