Connecting to the UCC VPN allows you access to internal resources that are normally firewalled off.
There are two VPN methods - the new IPsec VPN and the old PPTP VPN. The latter is deprecated. The new VPN works on all modern devices.
Connecting to the VPN
Use secure.ucc.asn.au as the Internet address
- No need to set any advanced settings (if you do, you want IKEv2 and authentication via EAP-MSCHAPv2) .
- Use IPsec RSA Hybrid
IKE/IPsec setup is done by strongSwan on Murasoi. There are similar setups for IKEv1 (Android, iOS) and IKEv2 (Windows).
The XAuth/EAP authentication (IKEv1 and v2 respectively) is passed to the RADIUS server, which also handles accounting. select username, sum(acctinputoctets), sum(acctoutputoctets) from radacct where nasporttype='Virtual' group by username; will give you a nice sum of traffic over the VPN.
Clients get a IPv4 and IPv6 address from the ranges in Network.
