        I built the SimpleTunnel sample app and am running the VPN client on a IOS device and the VPN server (tunnel_server) on a MAC running OS 10.11 (OS X El Capitan)



        On MAC :-

        $ sudo ./tunnel_server 550 ../../tunnel_server/config.plist

        Response :-

        tunnel_server[87725:2604682] Starting network service on port 550

        tunnel_server[87725:2604682] Network service published successfully


        On IOS device :-

        Next I ran the PacketTunnel app on my IOS device. Added a VPN configuration with the correct IP address (the IP address of the MAC running the tunnel_server) and the port number (port number for the tunnel_server which is 550). Next I try to connect to the VPN from the IOS device and this seems to go through fine as I see the VPN sign in status bar.


        Response on the screen running tunnel_server :-

        tunnel_server[87739:2606312] Accepted a new connection

        tunnel_server[87739:2606312] Allocated address Optional("")


        However I am not able to browse the internet using Safari on the ios device (it times out), but am able to do the same from the MAC


        Any insights on what I might be missing ?

        Please note that my MAC doesn't have OS X server installed. Also I did run the following two comands from a terminal before starting the tunnel_server on the MAC

        sudo sysctl net.inet.ip.forwarding=1

        sudo sysctl net.inet.ip.fw.enable=1
