I have 2 raspberry Pi3s with SoftEther installed. With the help of the fantastic k6ozy (Chris) videos I have successfully connected to my Home Pi via my remote Laptop. I am now trying to VPN in with my Maestro with my second Pi3. I am also using k6ozy videos for this. The remote path goes through my iPhone. The Pi3 connects to the hotspot fine. On the Maestro I see I am connected with a yellow triangle/explanation point meaning it doesn't see the internet. Of course the "radio" page of the Maestro is blank.
I could use some help in sorting through this. I am out of ideas.
The most important thing is that you must (must must must) have a bridge setup in the softether config on the pi you are connecting to the maestro. Otherwise your softether connection has nowhere to go. That bridge will bridge the RJ45 LAN connector to the SoftEther connection.
It is at 12:18 in Chris's video:
Make sure you select eth0, since he clearly says wlan0 was a mistake.
Yes I am aware of Chris's error in specifying "wlan" instead of "eth0". He has a note that pops saying "don't listen to me- it should be eth0". I laugh each time I see it. I have been through his video so many times I have it about memorized.
One very good thing is that I know a whole lot more about Linux than I knew before!
I do understand that a bridge needs to be set up- I believe where the issue is the connection between the Remote Pi and the Home pi is not being realized.
One other item I don't understand is my wlan address of my router is never specified. I have port forwarded the ports of my home raspberry. However, on the remote raspberry Pi I never specify the wlan address of my router. Maybe that's the issue. Did I not miss-interrupt Chris's directions?
