Remote user to Company LAN


Employees need to connect to the company LAN from outside or home? Remote Access VPN realizes virtual network cable from a Client PC to the LAN from anywhere and anytime.



Tutorial can be found here:

Some extra points to address:

set the VPN hub and name, we will use this on the client side for connection.

Use L2TP server function (L2TP over IPsec)

set the IPsec PSKs: VPN(default)

After this, you need to allow the port 5555 through firewall.


Symptom: The connection is successful, but you can not open the shared folder in Domain.

Reason: This problem happens when you created user name on Virtual Hub, but the user name is not in the Active directory database, which leads to not enough privilege


We can map a network drive and use different credentials, then use a domain user who have enough privilege to access the shared folder.
