I am trying to set up a vpn connection to access my router for my linux computer. On the server side everything should be set fine. Now I am trying to connect with my client but I can't really get it to work. It needs to be an IPsec connection, otherwise it won't work. This is what I have:
Gateway: MyStaticIpAddress IPsec Settings Gateway Id: ??????? Phase1 Algorithm: Must be AES256 and SHA2 256 (what would be the correct format???) Phase1 Algorithm: Must be AES256 and SHA2 256 (what would be the correct format???)
And finally ubuntu asks me to verify myself when I hit connect. Would that be my admin password or would that be my preshared key??
Maybe it helps also to know that on a Mac these configs work:
serveraddress: mystaticip remote ID: digibox local ID: peerid and for authentication only the preshared key Pre-shared key: mypresharedkey
Maybe that's not even the way to go? Maybe I need strongswan or sth?! help.....
Relatively new to linux so if someone could lend a helping hand it would be fantastic! Thanks in advance!
