VeeamPN - Vpn with two interfaces

Post by zeliko20 » Nov 08, 2019 12:00 pm

Hello everyone,
the network configuration of my structure includes two separate virtual switches, one for the public and the private one. The exposed interface will therefore have a public ip address, while the vpn must supply the service on lan.

The passage should be this:

External PC -> VPN with public IP (ens160) -> LAN network (ens192)

When I add the whole LAN ens192 interface (LAN SWITCH) to the system, the service does not start, the error is as follows:

2019-11-08 11: 32: 26,799 <1249> [error] [veeampn] [EXCEPTION] Found multiple adapters: ens160, ens192
2019-11-08 11: 32: 26,799 <1249> [error] [veeampn] [MAIN] Standard exception error: Found multiple adapters: ens160, ens192

Is it possible to configure the service with two interfaces?

Hey there Rob.

At the moment that configuration is unsupported. The dev team for the product might be able to comment further on future supportability.

Hello Rob.

As I understood you would like to use Veeam PN only for a single network adapter, and the other one is for LAN networking then you can try to force Veeam PN to use "ens160" adapter.

You will need to start veeampnd as follows:

veeampnd -a ens160

You will need to modify /etc/systemd/system/veeam-vpn-svc.service to make this change persistent.

I'm not sure this setup will work without further modifications as I don't have access to a system with 2 network adapters.
You may need to create additional routing rules to pass traffic between interfaces.

[MERGED] VeeamPN with multipe NIC/Subnets

Post by LickABrick » Dec 23, 2019 7:33 pm

Is it possible to have VeeamPN with multiple NIC's? I have 3 subnets on 3 different NIC's e.g.: on ens18 on ens19 on ens20

I want my VPN Clients be able to talk to all these subnets.
I tried adding the HUB Site while having 3 NIC's but my VeeamPN won't start with more as 1 NIC, it keeps restarting until the restart retry-limit is reached.

Anyone has a solution to this issue?

Hi and welcome to the community!

VeeamPN cannot work with multiple NICs.
Please review the discussion above for useful considerations.
