Hi Everybody

Today I had a strange problem. I tried to connect to my clients VPN server on the Vodacom network using a 4G Dongle and Vodacom Fibre network, but it doesnt want to connect. Then I tested on MTN Dongle and Fixed LTE and it works and connects 100%

I can understand the Vodacom Fibre router L2tp ports being blocked but on a 4G Vodacom Dongle? Doesnt make sense

Any advise?

Not sure if ports are blocked necessarily.

If I'm not mistaken, Voda mobile requires that you sign a waiver when you request an unrestricted APN.

Maybe there's something in that.
