Mikrotik L2TP with IPSec HOW TO by Travis Kenner

Equipment:
Mikrotik RB750GL Running Package version 6.0rc11
Apple IPhone 4 with iOS 5.x

NOTE: All the formatting on this page is not done as this was a really long Blog: I am redoing it to have better formatting and better explanations. I added some screen shots but like anything you write yourself after you have gone over and over it I tend to miss grammer or spelling mistakes LOL and that’s with a spell checker. HA HA.

Unfortunately there is only 3 Options with the IPhone 4 at this point in time.

PPTP – Not so secure anymore accoriding to some googling and the blog above

IPSec (only used for CISCO).

So I set out to get my IPhone connected to my Mikrotik using L2TP with IPSec.

Here are the steps to get it setup.
