VPN server on PINE64+

Recommended Posts

Using legacy Xenial image on pine64, I found that VPN server could not be executed due to the lack of PPP and IPSEC kernel options and probably other modules.

 

Could be enabled on future releases ? 

 

Best regards, Gustavo.

Sorry for the time and not reply anything.

 

I could not configure VPN Server. Problems with strongSwan configuration, but now I finally replace my Pine64 with and old Cubieboard2 with ARMBIAN.

 

The problem with my Pine64 was that over the time, PINE64 go to the future ;-)

 

The clock forward. I search for others user with the same problem but no one appear to have this iusse. BTSync refuse sync, and cron go out of time.

 

Pine64 is incredible. Is a great machine but this iusse ruin my server. 

 

Is my Pine64 broken ?

Yes, the ntp service is running as default in ARMBIAN. But when the clock goes in the future the only way to correct it is reboot the Pine64.

I also have a similar problem; my pine64 doesn't have some kernel modules required for a L2TP/IPsec VPN server with strongSwan + xl2tpd: https://wiki.strongswan.org/projects/strongswan/wiki/KernelModules.

My kernel is longsleep, Xenial, but not the one included in Arabian Ubuntu image; I installed my Ubuntu with the image distributed on the pine64's official wiki: http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Main_Page#Curated_Pine_A64_.28A64.2B.29_OS_Images.

 

My questions are:

  • Is it possible to use Armbian build tools to build the only missing kernel modules to use on my pine64? (I don't want to reinstall entire system from the beginning now, it would be big work.)
  • If possible, how can I achieve that?
  • if impossible, I may reinstall my pine64 with Armbian's Ubuntu image. When that is the case, can I built and use the required kernel modules for strongSwan?

Hi, everyone

 

Did any of you set up a VPN server on PINE64 with L2TP/IPsec protocol?

I tried onece with strongSwan and xl2tpd, but didn't go well; syslog said "not supported protocol", didn't make the tunnel, and some kernel modules might be needed.
The list of required kernel modules are here: https://wiki.strongswan.org/projects/strongswan/wiki/KernelModules

At the same time, I thought the listed kernel modules are somehow usual ones and should be built-in kernel itself. But, I'm not sure whether they are built-in or not; I'm a beginner in Linux kernel.
 

If any of you set up a VPN server on PINE64, some advice will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
