    Default Managing Untangle Through L2L VPN

    Hello All,

    I set up Untangle on a box a few days ago and so far it has worked great. I have a L2L vpn setup between this box and our home office. Everything works fine except that I cannot log into the untangle box from the home office over the vpn. I can see the network and all the devices but when I try to use a browser to connect to the Untangle box it won't happen. Is there a setting somewhere that I missed? I can log into a pc on the same network as the untangle box and then log into untangle but I can't always ask an employee if i can use their pc while I work on Untangle.

    Any suggestions? I don't want to open management access to the outside world, just open it to devices on the vpn.

    Good Morning -

    I too am having this exact same issue. I have two untangle boxes connected via L2TP, I can see, browse, access and ssh to all systems on either side of the tunnel but I can not access the far-side untangle GUI via the L2TP tunnel.

    In my filter settings (Config -> Network -> Advanced -> Filter Rules) I created a rule specifically to allow http and https on L2TP. This did not work for me.

    What is interesting is that I have OpenVPN as well and when I connect to the untangle box via the openvpn connection, I can get to the GUI just fine.

    What are you connecting to? HTTPs admin should work on the internal IP address of Untangle without modification.

    Tried both http and https - no go. Same situation on two different UTs.

    BTW - I just sent you a PM.

    Use IPsec not L2TP to connect Untangle boxes. L2TP is meant for PCs connecting remotely.

    Sorry - That is what I meant - IPSec, we are not using L2TP but IPSec. So I guess that is why the L2TP filter is not working.

    OK - Figured it out (thanks Sky-Knight). Needed to add a filter (Config -> Network -> Advanced -> Filter Rules) to allow access from the internal IP block of the far side.

    Actually, you just need it for the IP address of the Untangle.

    When you say "you just need the IP address of the Untangle" what do you mean? The filter rule I had to create was to allow the IP address of the system (or network) on the far side of the tunnel. Once I created the filter rule to allow that IP block, it worked perfectly.

    Thanks
