Having some questions with setting up VPN


(ledoktre) #1

Been struggling with getting VPN working on FreePBX/PBXact, and I was typing out some questions and then bam I just sorta figured it out.

There is one thing that is a bit odd to me though. Let me document what I have setup (modified from default) and then I will ask below.

** Endpoint Manager Global Page **
√ Internal Address - IP address of my PBX, not VPN address
√ External Address - FQDN of server
√ Ports listed are 4 - 2 each secure and not secure

** Endpoint Manager Sangoma Page **
√ Duplicated the default template and renamed it to default_vpn
√ Default Internal- no
√ Default External- yes
√ SIP Destination- Local PBX address (not VPN address!)
√ Privision protocol - HTTPS
√ Provision address- external
√ PhoneApps Protocol - HTTPS

** System Admin > VPN Server > Settings **
√ Server Range, left alone
√ Server Remote Address, is public IP
√ Redirect GW? No
√ Routes- has 10.8.0.0/24 listed and No

** System Admin > VPN Server > Client (editing one) **
√ Use DDNS - no
√ Use Server Remote Address - yes

Steps I took to get VPN online:
√ Booted phone, selected external login and logged in
√ Phone reboots, all URLs are external URLs, great.
√ Phone is NOT on VPN, so I go into the Extension Mapping of Endpoint Manager and edit it, assign vpn profile to user
√ Reboot system

When it reboots, it detects VPN configuration, and this time when it attempts to load the config, background, and ring tones, it is loading from https://10.8.0.1:1443, which is the VPN server address and does not have a valid SSL that I know of. It is also setting 10.8.0.1 as the SIP server as well, even though its supposed to be the local lan address.

Question (finally, right?) : Why is the phone changing out the address it connects to with the VPN server address (and how to address this?) ?

Thanks,

Any takers here? Is anyone here seeing this issue?
