Good day, we have an urgent challenge we need to resolve as we are trying to connect our Linode to a Partner's Site gateway running a Huawei IPSEC Gateway.
Using Strongswan, we have established VPN connectivity from our Linode 185.*.*..* into the partner gateway. However we need our second server 185.*.*.* to be able to send traffic to our partner network via .94.
we also trying to route traffic from another Server at Knownsrv (194.*.*.*.*) to the partner network via this VPN connection setup on Linode 185.*.*.*. All have Public Ips.
We are not sure what rules/ routes we need to add to make this happen or whether we need an internal IP of sorts.
this is very urgent and needs to be done today if possible.
