sorry if you receive twice this mail but the first one seems to be in
the cosmos. ;-)
And thank for what you did (shorewall) and what you do (helping by this
I would like to create a tunnel based on vtun (protocol udp port 5000).
To do so, i followed your "howto" about openvpn under shorewall, which
seems the same thing as vtun.
BUT, If I create the same config files as you did, I can't establish the
tunnel. Are there rules missing on your howto ?
With your config, should I normally be able to access the other subnet
via vtun ?
To have it only establish (no ping available between the 2 subnets), I
have to change for tcp protocol and add rules like that
ACCEPT fw net 5000
ACCEPT net fw 5000
where is the problem ?
What I can say is that if I open everything (ACCEPT for INPUT, OUTPUT
FORWARD and MASQUERADE all but tun+), the connexion is up via vtun, ping
is ok, and samba too. (with UDP and TCP).
Could you explain me why ?
What have I missed ?
