Hi,

I'm looking for a way to allow/disallow incoming L2TP VPN connections based on the hostname of the connecting computer.
Would that somehow be possible?

Thanks!

    I don't think so....

    A way I allow L2TP VPN is by FQDN like UserallowVPN.no-ip.org and the client runs DDNS the firewall only allow the matching IP of the DDNS.

    Hi @ItsMe,
    As PeterUK said. Using DDNS to restrict source addresses.
    It is hard to implement hostname restrictions.

    So maybe create an ACL for L2TP based on MAC addresses then?
    Would that be possible?

    Hi @ItsMe,
    We don't support L2TP based on MAC address. We will continue to improve this. 
    Thank you

    So what mechanism do you have to allow or disallow L2TP VPN for specific devices?

    Firewall rules. AKA Security policies, but it chews only ip addresses and not hostnames.

    So there's no way to control which device can or cannot connect over L2TP.
    That's rather disappointing...

    Thanks for the info anyways.
