Re: Issues with new USG 50

said by dda:

I got the USG because it could be an IPSEC endpoint. Is L2TP as secure as IPSEC? I know the iPhone does L2TP over IPSEC; does Mac OS X do the same thing? I suppose it would be nicer to use OS X Server to handle all of this but then I really don't need the power of the USG.

Its actually L2TP over IPSec (L2TP/IPSec), with IPSec used to secure L2TP traffic.

While I have L2TP over IPSec working with the iPhone and iPad, it won't work when I use my work LAN, which is unfortunately double-NATted. It also doesn't work with the MacBook Pro at work, probably for the same reason. For the iDevices, it's easy; I switch to LTE but that doesn't cut it for the Macs. Any idea how to deal with double NATting? Or is that even an issue?
