Hello :) 

I'm having issue trying to exclude internet traffic from our VPN L2TP client / Server tunnel 

-> Server is an USG 210 
-> Client is Windows client 


Can someone explain how to do that? Is there a routing rule to set to do that ? 

I really need to keep the internet traffic out of the L2TP tunnel ... as our bandwidth is a 10 mb 

THanks for your help

    Hello Anthoshell,
    The Windows device doesnot support Split Tunneling in the L2TP scenario.(IOS device can do that)
    However, for windows device, client can do split tunneling  via IKEv2.
    Here is an example for IKEv2 as your reference.

    Now  the client (windows) says the connection between your laptop and the server can not be establish ...

    Is there a firewall rule to apply or something ? 

    I followed exactly the schema you attached in your first message

    Thanks again for your help

    Hello Anthoshell,
    I assume you did the wrong way to import Cert, because I tested it locally, and it's working.
    Here is an details of Import cert to PC as your reference.

    Also, please make sure the "IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules" already started

    Please choose “System and Security”.

     

     Choose “Administrator Tools”.

     

    Choose “Component Services”.

     

    Make sure the status of “IKE and AuthIP IPs..” is started.

    Is there any routing rule to add in the USG ?

    @Anthoshell
    I remember you have to create a static route from your L2TP-VPN Network to any and the next hop is your configured "WAN TRUNK".
    The VPN-IP Range is not an existing IP Segment on your USG, so you had to configure a static route to be able to get connected to the internet trough your WAN-TRUNK. All other networks (internal) are routable automaticaly.

    Have fun

    Hi @ChristianG and thanks

    It's not an L2TP but an IPSEC IKEV2  i created the route just for testing ... had the same issue, local ressources are reachable but still no internet. .. and i need the internet traffic to not go accross the tunnel that's the reason why i can't use L2TP

    :(

    @Anthoshell
    in a split mode, i remember on a Checkpoint, i have to checkup the central configuration for the VPN Clients. There must be the local networks defined, they are accessable trough the VPN and a wildcard for internet access directly trough the users ISP.

    Good luck!
