l2tp client issue- connecting

Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:16 pm

hello
i have router: RB2011UiAS-2HnD
version: 6.38.1 (stable)

bug is:
when my router shutdown suddenly or some times i did reboot after it back i noticed that my l2tp not able to reconnect
it stuck on connecting then disconnected & so on
it did not give any reason of disconnect in log screen
Image

i checked the remote Mtik (server) Log , there is no incoming connection , that mean issue not from mtik Server

how can i fix issue temporarily:
from client : i disconnect my l2tp client for 10 minutes , then re-connect (enable) it again --->> it connected like a charm

so i need this bug fixed parmently by new SW

regards
Alaa

schedule this script to run every 5-10 minutes (Or you can also schedule to run this script to run only in startup). I have scheduled to run it every 10 mins.
The script checks the L2TP and does nothing if it is running, but if the connection is not running, it disables the interface and waits for 5 mins and then automatically enables it.
* change the line "l2tp-out1" to your l2tp interface name...
* change the delay value "300" to your desired seconds...

This code can be used for any PPP interfaces just need the change the type of interface as well as the name to work
:if ([/interface l2tp-client get l2tp-out1 running]=true) do={:log warning "l2tp-out1 is running perfectly";} else={:log warning "l2tp-out1 NOT running"; :interface l2tp-client disable l2tp-out1; :delay 300; :interface l2tp-client enable l2tp-out1;};
P.S. Attention Mikrotik Admins. I believe, if I am not wrong, that this is a bug in the new firmware (6.3). My old machines running in legacy firmware never had this problem.

Are you sure your PPPoE setup is re-establishing correctly? I ran a test w/6.40rc24 with just L2TP server and client machines. They re-established fine whenever I killed a link in the middle between the server and client.

PPPoE should have a timeout value set very much like L2TP and the messages you are highlighting with the value 0.0.0.0/0 are irrelevant. You can see from the complete log below that the 0.0.0.0/0 destination is not important at least in the scope o the error. I'd have to dive into it more to see if there is a logical reason for the 0.0.0.0/0 value or if the error is just poorly formatted. Either way that alone does not indicate the problem.

TLDR; verify that your PPPoE client is re-establishing correctly. You may need to define a timeout value in either or both of the PPPoE client or server. This may require a call to your ISP or whoever runs the PPPoE server.

Re: l2tp client issue- connecting

Sun Apr 28, 2019 2:11 pm

I have the same issue with new 6.44.1 and 6.44.3.
I have 6.44.1 putted as VPN server in my main site.
And i have 6.44.3 is far from in village.
In village i have do not so stable internet connection and it's disappear often.
So when internet connection is disappear and bring back my l2tp connection is not establish

Logs from Mikrotik on server side 6.44.1

and so on

and so on

When i disable l2tp-out1 for a several minutes and re-enable it - it's connect without any problems.
So maybe there are any solutions to fix it?

Re: l2tp client issue- connecting

It looks like some connection in a firewall needs to die on timeout to allow things to start happening properly. What the log at 6.44.1 says is that the machine receives retransmissions of the first IPsec packet aimed to establish the connection from the initiator after it has responded to the first one to arrive, which suggests that the responses never reach the initiator.

So while that situation exists, what does /ip firewall connection print detail where dst-address~":(500|1701|4500)\$" or src-address~":(500|1701|4501)\$" show at both ends?
Instead of writing novels, post /export hide-sensitive. Use find&replace in your favourite text editor to systematically replace all occurrences of each public IP address potentially identifying you by a distinctive pattern such as my.public.ip.1.
