I am testing the zeroshell router, and I am experiencing some problems when I try to configure a VPN lan to lan.
I have created the object VPN without problems, and I have setup the necessary parameters.
But, I encountered, my first error adding a static route. I am trying to add:
Destination network 188.8.131.52 with netmask 255.0.0.0 and gateway the IP address that I have already coonfigured in th VPN network
So, when I try to add the route I have got the following:
ERROR: Static route 184.108.40.206/255.0.0.0 via 220.127.116.11 metric 0 not added: RTNETLINK answers: No such process
Could anyone help me,
Thanks in advanceMarch 2, 2010 at 7:49 am #49813
Could you show us a pic of the network addresses of the router?March 2, 2010 at 11:57 am #49814
Sorry, in my last post I wrote down incorrect ip’s. These are the correct ones.
I am trying to add:
Destination network 18.104.22.168 with netmask 255.0.0.0 and gateway the IP address that I have already coonfigured in th VPN networkMarch 2, 2010 at 1:27 pm #49815
Yep what you are trying to do is forbidden cause you have to use as gateway the IP address of the remote end of the VPN, i.e 22.214.171.124March 2, 2010 at 6:22 pm #49816
Hello Again ,
I am a little bit confused. My goal is to construct a Site to site VPN. What I understand of this is a Router to router VPN. So, I did the following:
1.- Install the Zeroshell.
2.- Add two interfaces 10.0.0.0 network and 126.96.36.199 network. as you can see below in the image. I setup a default route =10.0.0.1
3.- My goal is to achieve from 188.8.131.52 to the 184.108.40.206 network(i.e.:host 220.127.116.11)
4.- I set up the vpn object with my understandig of the following parameters:
remote host= 18.104.22.168 and gateway = auto.
5.- As it describe in the documentation, I added an IP (22.214.171.124) to the interface VPN00.
6.- And Finally I had to add a static route. And here is where I have got the error. In my understanding I set , the following parameters:
Destination = the 126.96.36.199 domain network with its mask.
Gateway= the remote router (188.8.131.52)
metric = 0
You can see my network in the following image

As I said on my previous post, the gateway for network 184.108.40.206 should be the VPN00 IP address of router “220.127.116.11”, not this IP address.
To make it more clear, to assign a gateway you have to be able to reach this gateway with a direct connection. Normally a direct connection can only be a link, but a VPN is a virtual link so it acts and is treated as a link. In other words the gateway MUST be in the subnets of one of your interfaces.March 2, 2010 at 10:36 pm #49818
Thank you, for your response, but I am still confused.
I deleted everything about the vpn and I started from the beginning.
1) I have 2 interfaces 10 network and 11 network. with 255.0.0.0 mask
2) I have a default gateway , which it is 10.0.0.1
3) Now I have to creaye the vpn object OK?. with the following parameters:
Remote host: here should be the remote router (18.104.22.168) or a server from the 19.x domain?
Gateway: here should be my default gateway (10.0.0.1) isn’t it?.
4) Now I have to assign an ip addres to the vpn object. which one I could use?
and finally I have to add a static route
Could we agree with the 4 steps, in order to continue to the last one?
THX very much for your cooperation..

Steps 1 and 2 are ok.
On step 3 your gateway will be the default, as you don’t have any other available.
You will assign a couple of IP addresses to both ends of the VPN tunnel, for example 192.168.1.1/30 and 192.168.1.2/30.
If you set 192.168.1.1 on the VPN00 then for the static route you will use 192.168.1.2 as a gateway.March 3, 2010 at 12:09 pm #49820
I setup on the remote end interface 22.214.171.124
and in my end I setup in the VPN00 interface the 126.96.36.199
So I try to add the static route:
destination:188.8.131.52 mask: 255.0.0.0
gateway: 184.108.40.206 metric:0
And I have got the same error:
Mar 03 11:50,41 ERROR: Static route 220.127.116.11/255.0.0.0 via 18.104.22.168 metric 0 not added: RTNETLINK answers: No such processMarch 3, 2010 at 1:48 pm #49821
No this is wrong again. 22.214.171.124 is the physical interface IP, not the tunnel IP. You will have to use as gateway for the 126.96.36.199 the tunnel IP that you will assign on the router with physical IP 188.8.131.52, not 184.108.40.206 itself. Hope it is clear now, cause I cannot help you any further.January 17, 2014 at 12:59 am #49822
I had failed to put an IP address on both sides of the VPN.
Resolved by going into “VPN” > “LAN-to-LAN (OpenVPN)” > clicked on my VPN entry then in that section – there are buttons to the right (use the sub-scroll bar to scroll down to “Add IP”.
The VPN IP address is internal and not accessible/usable outside of the VPN.
It appears to be only used for route table entries and can be anything you like. As long as both ends are in the same network.
I used 192.168.123.1 on end A and 192.168.123.2 on the other end.
Once both ends had IP addresses, I was able to happily add the route.
Say my Site B network is 10.33.123.0/24 and Site A network is 10.33.124.0/24…
On Site A’s ZeroShell, I add the route:
I choose “gateway” (not Interface): 192.168.123.2, metric 0, interface=can’t change this.
Then on Site B’s ZeroShell I add the route:
I choose “gateway” (not Interface): 192.168.123.1, metric 0, interface=can’t change this.
Then it works. If pings between servers on each end fail – check your host firewalls on said servers. My pings were failing – was due to the lovely Windows firewall being enabled on one side.
Hopefully this points you in the right direction and gets you through.
