Has anyone installed pptpd on their core yet? With pptpd, we can use the iPhone (or any client) to vpn into the core. Really nice for using the web orbiter remotely. I set it up in 5 minutes, and it works great.
For those interested:
# Get the server installed.
sudo apt-get install pptpd
# Edit /etc/pptpd.conf file to setup the IP address for connected clients. Enable localip and remoteip to something like
# Use /etc/resolv.conf to find the DNS of the system, and edit /etc/ppp/pptpd-options to enable ms-dns – something like
# Set the VPN account by editing /etc/ppp/chap-secrets. Replace user and password with whatever you like.
user pptpd password *
# Restart the server by executing
sudo /etc/init.d/pptpd restart
# Open port 1723 to the core (Advanced > Network > Firewall Rules)
# Setup VPN in the iPhone by General > Network > VPN > PPTP. Enable Auto encryption level. Keep RSA SecurID off. Configure with the user and password you set up.
It should work now.
