For several years now, the widely used AVM FRITZ!Boxes have the possibility of establshing VPN tunnels between several FRITZ!Boxes. I had planned to pair my own home network with my parents' to make regular backups from my parents' computers. Thanks to VPN coupling, also called LAN-LAN-connection, data transmission would have been secure and encrypted. However, I encountered an error in setting up the configuration, which made it possible to establish a connection, but did not allow data transfer between the networks. How I solved the problem, I would like to describe here.
What is the content of this blog, you may ask? My name is Julian Joswig and I am a big fan of IT and technology (mainly Linux, servers, networks and all related topics). Sometimes I almost bite my teeth on difficult issues. But if I have found a solution, I want to share it with the world. Professionally, I work as a management consultant in Germany with a focus on IT and business.
