iOS 12.2 no VPN anymore

(Max Mackenzie) #1

Core Machine (Operating system/System info/Roon build number)

Mac mini i7 16Gb/500/500Gb drives and Drobo 32TB DAS storage
High Sierra 10.13.6 Server version 5.6.3 using L2TP VPN

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)

CambridgeAudio 851N/851W using Airplay - CAT6, USB, RaspberryPi 3 with Allo Kali/Piano2.1 - CAT6, Sonos One (4x) Sonos Play5 (2x) Sonos Surround (Bar, Sub, 2xPlay3) - WiFi, iPhone 7Plus with Sennheiser Bluetooth headset - WiFi and VPN, iPhone Xr with Grado headset - WiFi and VPN,

Description Of Issue

I once had it worked for VPN running on iPhones and wanted to go for a subscription - this trial version ends 30 of May I hope this can / will be solved - otherwise I am forced to stay @ Audirvana which is as good in sound quality.

VPN is setup using the L2TP function of Mac OS server 5.6.3 and it did work - but now not any more … I followed almost all possible steps on the web (Roonlabs.com) but no luck up to now when the iPhones are IN the LAN wifi the endpoint is connected to the Core - when outside the LAN using VPN I only see the endpoints within the LAN but the iPhone disappears

I can connect the the local IP address of the Core using vpn - but still NO iPhone Endpoint when connecting thru 4G-VPN – Roon Core in my LAN

and yes according to this it should have the same subnet and inside the same IP range

Hi @Max_Mackenzie,

I have moved your post over to the Roon Tinkering section because using a VPN in Roon is not supported at this time. For Roon and device/core discovery to work properly, all devices have to be on the same flat local network + subnet, and it appears that this is not the case here.

A few users have gotten Roon to work with a VPN in the following threads, but I just want to be clear here: if you are running this kind of setup, you are on your own with regards to the configuration, you can ask other users for advice but it is not officially supported.

Thank you all for the information - I once had it running on the the same hardware/software - but when I upgraded my iOS to 12.2 it stopped working and cannot get it back - I started from scratch and I can remotely select the connect Zones on the core (VPN) even over 4G without VPN but I cannot add my iPhone to the Core … ONLY when I am in the WiFi environment (so my Local LAN) when I am outside (on my balcony then I have 4G and VPN running) no problems with other programs, but ROON will not show me the connection to my Core … As far as I can see I have a VPN tunnel from the core to my iPhone but :frowning: no luck up to yet Anybody? I also tried ZeroTier, no luck … so I must be doing something wrong …

this is what I get from my VPN server - ROON on 192.168.1.221 and 255.255.255.0 and the iPhone VPN 192.168.1.130
