Hello. I live in a country with very restricted internet.
I have tried running l2tp in mikrotik device running routerOS 6.47.8
At the top of the interface it says it is connected (attached picture). Using whatsmyip and others it shows that my ip has changed to the connected vpn server. But i cant access blocked websites and get a connection timed out error.
I have run these commands to route the traffic through vpn interface:
/ip firewall nat
/add action=masquerade out-interface=l2tp-out1 chain=srcnat
/ip firewall mangle
/add chain=prerouting action=mark-routing new-routing-mark=l2tp passthrough=no \
/add dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 gateway=l2tp-out1 routing-mark=l2tp
My router is connected to a 4g modem directly.
Does it have to do with DNS settings? I tried setting it to google dns from ip>DNS servers but it didn't help.
