How to configure the SBG5500 in order to access the Internet over L2TP VPN?

Scenario

This document shows the key L2TP VPN configuration which users usually neglect. The SBG5500's L2TP VPN design does not restrict users to fill in the DNS information before applying the settings. However, DNS details are necessary in order to access the Internet over L2TP VPN. 

Step

1. Configure the IPsec VPN settings. There is a pair of default IPsec profile for L2TP VPN, users can enable the profile pair directly but it is suggested to configure a pre-shared key in the IPsec phase 1 profile. It is notable that SBG5500 only uses the default IPsec profile pair for L2TP VPN; any user-added IPsec VPN profiles would not be applied to L2TP VPN. 
 
2. Configure the L2TP VPN settings. 
  • Enable L2TP VPN. 
  • Fill in the DNS information. In this example, the DNS server  is "8.8.8.8". 
  • Apply the settings.

 

Verification

1. Connect a PC to the L2TP VPN server, in which the PC is the L2TP VPN client. 

2. Access a web sites, e.g. Zyxel global website "www.zyxel.com".
