You cannot establish an L2TP over IPsec connection from a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device


Consider the following scenario:
  • You are running a Microsoft Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based image on a device.
  • You try to establish a Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) over Internet Protocol security (IPsec) connection from the device.
  • The device connects to a private network. The private network connects to a public network through a Network Address Translation (NAT) gateway. The L2TP server is located in a public network.
In this scenario, you cannot establish the L2TP over IPsec connection. 


This issue occurs because some Internal Key Exchange (IKE) packages are lost when they are sent through a port on the device. Therefore, the IPsec connection fails in the NAT gateway.
