Hi All,

I moved from C-Fibre to Cool Ideas. Since then my inbound connections (I ssh into my cluster every now and then) are blocked.

Does Cool Ideas filter inbound connections? This would be a deal breaker for me :(

Can someone else confirm this is a standard block with Cool Ideas? Need to have in-bound L2TP/IPsec working and was planning to shift over to Cool Ideas as soon as Frogfoot finishes their build in the area.

We don't block any inbound connections.
We don't NAT.

You are on the internet with a public IP, exposed. L2TP and IPSec should work just fine.

I use open VPN and it works 100 percent

I have CISP on Vumatel at my Folks and don't have any issues with L2TP or EoIP etc
