I’ve been using OpenVPN for years and enjoy the convenience that OpenVPN only require one TCP or UDP port, which is fairly easy to set up even when one of the site is behind NAT or having dynamic IP. In comparison, setup IPsec is more complicated in this case.
However, EdgeRouter hardware offloading does not support OpenVPN. In this example, we will set up IPsec site-to-site using EdgeRouter, with one site having static IP, another site is using dynamic Internet IP and behind a NAT device (e.g. ISP-provided router). In my case, the ISP-provided router is an Optus/Sagemcom router, and the example config is available in another article. If your environment is not that complicated, refer to Ubiquiti help articles.Continue reading “EdgeRouter IPsec site-to-site config example – one site static IP, another site dynamic Internet IP and behind NAT”
