I have a Ubuntu 10.04 server with PPTPD server. It has one nic with eth0 and eth0:0. eth0:0 has an UK IP and eth0 has a Franch IP. I have setup eth0:0 as default gateway because I want to show that the server has an UK IP address.
The problem is that when I connect to the server using a Mac, the traffic is routed using the eth0 nic.
Is there a way to tell to PPTPD which nic to use to route the internet traffic? Using route -n I get the right routing table:
Destination 0.0.0.0 -> UK-IP
If I access an IP to geolocation web site from the server, it shows the UK IP. Network configuration is:
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast xxx.xxx.xxx.255 network xxx.xxx.xxx.0 auto eth0:0 iface eth0:0 inet static address IP.DE.FAIL.OVER netmask 255.255.255.255 broadcast IP.DE.FAIL.OVER gateway IP.DE.FAIL.OVER
I have used this guide to configure PPTPD: Howto: PPTP VPN Server with Ubuntu 10.04 ‘Lucid Lynx’
I tried this too:
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -d xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -j MASQUERADE
(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the UK IP assigned to eth0:0)
but the client cannot access the network.
