Need some help with openvpn or pptp setup on openvz vps
I have been trying to setup pptp vpn to connect my iphone to my openvz server, I have installed the pptpd server and I tried to follow this guide but I have problems setting iptables as this is openvz; I would appreciate any help getting this setup going, thank you.
P.S. I have also installed openvpn on this server so if anyone can offer some help with openvpn and iphone then it will be much appreciated, thank you.
Have you enabled Tun/Tap and PPP?
Just the following rule should work, where $ip is the external IP of your VPS:
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j SNAT --to-source $ip
EDIT: For OpenVPN you will also want the following:
iptables -A FORWARD -i tun0 -o venet0 -j ACCEPT
@Daniel yeah Tun/Tap and PPP is enabled, in fact I tried on two different vps but the iphone does not seem to connect
when I exicute this command
/sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o venet0 -j MASQUERADEI get this error
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
Use this guide:
they also have a guide and automated scripts for both OpenVPN and PPTP that work very well.
can I say "that's because it is an iPhone" and derail the thread?
There are 4 or 5 kernel modules most hosts do not load which causes the iHipsterPhone to not work
