Cloudstack VPN Access

(Jerker Montelius)

This is a quickie.

How do I access a Cloudstack network with VPN from Linux?

Well thats easy.

Install and configure l2tp-ipsec-vpn like they describe in this article


There is a bug in L2tpIPsecVPN which apparently doesn’t send the password correctly. After adding new or editing existing connections, you need to add your user’s password into /etc/ppp/connection-name.options.xl2tpd


remotename ""

name "vpnuser"

password "securepassword"
