The meanings of each option are followings: L2TP Server Function (L2TP over IPsec) This function is for accepting VPN connections from iPhone, iPad, Android, and other smartphones, and built-in L2TP/IPsec VPN Client on Windows or Mac OS X. Enable it if you want to support one of these devices as VPN Client.

Note: when browse NAT policies you will find there is a default NAT policy for L2TP IP Pool which was generated by system when configuring WAN GroupVPN. In order to ensure the policy you just created can be hit as default, y ou are required to change the Priority of the NAT policy you just added to be prior to the default NAT Policy by clicking Jan 26, 2017 · In the previous post we have shown a Mikrotik router as a L2TP/IPSec server. In this scenario, we are using either Windows clients or mobile devices based on Android or Apple iOS operating systems. Here is a new scenario - we may have a need to use another Mikrotik device as the VPN client. L2TP over IP Sec and NAT -- Traversal. One of the issues with IP sec and hence VPN s using L2TP over IP sec is the inability to use them in matted environments. In a typical scenario, a VPN tunnel is used to provide access from outside the fire wall to inside by opening the ports on the fire wall used by the VPN. For what it is worth I found that NAT for VPN servers was pretty hopeless. The reason is just about every client will be using NAT as well -- so with the double NAT scenerio I had a set up that worked with a ratio of about 1 out of 3 people. – Kyle Brandt Mar 7 '11 at 21:12

I've managed to make my two windows 10 (64bit pro) installations connect to l2tp behind nat, using the mentioned registry key with value 2. I went into regedit, changed the key to 1, rebooted, changed the key back to 2, rebooted and now I can use VPN via l2tp again.

Nov 24, 2007 · From the point of view of the IPsec NAT Traversal problem, the fact there is a quick mode SA is far more important. It should be obvious by now that in order to pass multiple L2TP/IPsec VPN clients through a NAT device, the NAT device must *not* have a special NAT editor or "helper" for the IPsec protocol. May 31, 2017 · Note that Destination NAT is the preferred method to implement NAT-T when using multiple WAN interfaces in a Dual WAN Load-Balancing Scenario. The implementation of NAT-T is needed when the EdgeRouter (ER) is not the L2TP server, but instead forwards the traffic to an internal L2TP server behind NAT. Related articles.
