I am connecting to ipfire using IPSec Roadwarrior VPN config.
I set my IPSec network as 192.168.2.16/28 which is in my green 192.168.2.0/24, I modified DHCP on ipfire to never issue leases in that range to avoid a collision (leases start at 192.168.2.32).
I connect to the VPN and all seems well, I get issued the IP 192.168.2.17, ok that’s good. I do not get issued a DNS server… I assume I have to set one somewhere but I can’t see anywhere to set it?
But anyway, I try manually doing a lookup to the IPFire for DNS,
nslookup ebay.com 192.168.2.1 and it just hangs seems I cannot do any DNS resolving by the IPFire. I can ping 192.168.2.1 but no DNS resolution.
I feel like I am missing something but I followed the wikis and it doesn’t seem to mention what to do for DNS.
“Local subnet” of the connection is set to 0.0.0.0/0 as per the wiki. I tried setting it as green as well but that didn’t seem to help either.
