3g + IPSEC (routerboard/Fortigate 100d)


ok so iam new to routerOS and i must say this makes a fancy billion router look like a new born's toy at a fraction of the cost :D

iam using a Routerboard RB750UP (6.15 OS) with a USB 3g card (huawei), i got everything working (bridge all the Ethernet ports , and got the 3g connection up)

now i need to setup an IPSEC VPN Tunnel between the routerboard and our Fortigate 100d firewall.

as soon as i go to IP->IPSEC->Policies->add and then loose connection (cant ping , telnet or winbox) right after i click ok in the New IPsec Policy window.

any ideas ? am i missing something ?

Turn off  Masquerading for that connection first by specifying that specific network ahead of your other masquerading rules in nat settings and choose accept instead of masquerade. Your traffic is currently being masqueraded so you can't ping.
