i've been strugling with softether as a vpn server on a virtual windows server on azure (some "pro-bono" work i am doing for an ONG, i got them an azure sponsorship and moved their pretty bad administration software to the cloud during the pandemic).
There i mention my strugles, but no i want to focus on my probable incompetency on the mikrotik side (since its "working worse" than the softether <> softether setup i tried before).
Writing that post, i learnt how to force the local ip of the l2tp dynamic interface in the PPP profile.
After reading a ton of posts/documentation and watching a good deal of videos, i tried a lot, but sitll i only get conectivity from/to the SE VPN ip range (10.0.2.0/24). I can't get the azure server to reach anything on the local ip of the office.
Just before reading all this, i restored the initial config that had all the different points using the same 10.0.0.0/24 range, and enable proxy-arp, and now the server can ping the mikrotik/SE cascade server pc using their "softether ips" but not their "local" ones.
I managed to get the mikrotik l2tp client to the same functionality as the SE cascade server, but no to the point where the azure server can reach the network printer in the office.
Any tips for routes/firewall/other setting that might be missing to allow traffic between the office and the server and not just to allow the office to RDP to the server?
I'm attaching the old heX config i just exported (hopefully with nothing important left there).
This config was taken from my home device, which has been modified overtime with lots of stuff i found online, so some stuff might be wrong/weird for an office device :P
