IPSec lan to lan

Hello, I have two IPFire locations with a lan to lan IPSec connection this is working so far
I can ping devices on the other side of the vpn a tracert is also working.
but must I create firewall rules in between the two IPFire’s?
when I go to a site on the other site of the vpn in my browser example https://ip address:8181
nothing happens it’s waiting and waiting.


apologies for the belated response.

This depends on the firewalls rules you already have in place. Your description sounds like connection attempts are just running into a timeout, so please check IPFire’s firewall logs to ensure that such packets are not dropped by your IPFire machine.

Thanks, and best regards,

I solved this problem, the solution was that the MTU was fragmented the data I have changed the MTU to 1400 and everything is working.
