The most unblockable tunneling protocol?

Sun May 19, 2013 11:24 pm

Hello,

Which from tunneling protocol supported by Mikrotik Routeros is the most difficult to block using firewalls?
Gre, openvpn, pptp, sstp, l2tp/ipsec, gre, vpls?
In anticipation on new The Dude release.

SSTP, since it works on TCP 443, same as HTTPS.

Mass Config Push, network-wide RouterOS upgrades, and more!

Are you kidding? If you tie your ability to detect a protocol merely to a port then you are gravely mistaken.

If you block TCP 443, then you block every internet website that uses HTTPS.

Also, every tunneling protocol has a default port that it uses, if you dont like that, change it.
Also, you will find that most restrictive networks block ALL protocols and ports, other then well known ones.
