    What is your symptom? I think my BBM voice is broken.., or I'm confirming what you see.

    I went to just call my bro, which I know worked 1+ years ago, and now it just opens a black active frame. When I disconnected the VPN, the BBM call looked like it was going to go through.

    So we need someone with a sniffer to capture the traffic and find out what traffic and port its using to connect to BlackBerry servers.
    Not only the actual call, but you'll notice that the BBM Call/Video icon turns dark/disabled. What's interesting is that when I connect to the same VPN using Android (using the instructions in this thread), BBM calls work fine.

    When I call someone via bbm (with VPN connected), I get a black screen. The call doesn't go through. I'm guessing it's a bug with the BlackBerry10.

    No, it's not a bug with 'the BlackBerry 10'. It has to do with the strongswan vpn left and right side ip configuration. The XAUTH configuration that applies to Android is slightly different and bbm calls still work through that.

    It's not just with strongswan. I've used hide.me VPN too. Also another paid service (IKeV2 method). The same black screen. I highly doubt BlackBerry10's implementation of this than the VPN service provider.

    Ah ok. I thought it might have to do with how the ikev2 ipsec config has non-overlapping left and right IP ranges while the XAUTH config has the same IPs.

    Had anyone had a success of using OpenIKED instead of strongSwan as a vpn server for BB10?

    +1 to that. Unable to use BBM calls when connected to VPN.

    Found this thread. Thought was something with my settings on server. Using my own ipsec v1 server (pfSense). Everything worked over wifi connected to my server over ipsec, until upgrade to 10.3.1. Now I am getting a black bbm voice calling screen. Call is not being made. Must be something changed in 10.3.1 or a bug.

    How to report this to Blackberry?

    Yes! BBM calls and video did work in 10.2.1 over wifi. Not sure if it worked over 3g/4g. Frequently used my ipsec (ikev1) connection all day long and made multiple calls. Never seen the black bbm call screen before updating to 10.3.1.

    Please add check for bzip2
    I just tried script and there were no bzip2 on Contos7 image at my provider.

    Does script work on CentOS 7?
    Code:
    The service command supports only basic LSB actions (start, stop, restart, try-restart, reload, force-reload, status).
     For other actions, please try to use systemctl.
    sed: can't read /etc/sysconfig/iptables: No such file or directory
    Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart  iptables.service
    Failed to issue method call: Unit iptables.service failed to load: No such file or directory.
    Starting strongSwan 5.1.3 IPsec [starter]...
    So I checked the folder
    Code:

    I believe so. Also, does netstat show 1701 as listening? If so, that might need to be opened in fw as well.

    Adding 50,51 didn't help and ss(replacement for netstat) didn't show anything listening on the port, so I deleted them.

    1701 is not listed anywhere.

    Strange.

    Strange.
    netstat isn't currently showing 1701 as listening, but I did copy it from another of my working strongswan servers (before it died at provider's fault). So probably can disregard that.

    Code:
    firewall-cmd --list-all
    public (default, active)
      interfaces: ens33
      sources:
      services: ipsec ssh
      ports: 1701/udp 51/udp 50/udp 2222/tcp 500/udp 4500/udp

      icmp-blocks:
      rich rules:
            rule protocol value="ah" accept
            rule protocol value="esp" accept
    (I just used public instead of dmz, same thing as long as its active, AFAIK)

    Try testing your server from outside your home, or disable your Wifi at home and use cell data. For some reason (firewall I'm guessing), it doesn't work for me at home where it does outside or on cell data. It has similar symptom as you, server shows no errors but BB10 says timeout. I had two changes when that problem appeared for me. I changed to Centos 7, and I changed my router from Tomato based router to a Ubnt Edgerouter. I'll try my old Tomato router tomorrow.

    One of my home routers works and one doesn't. Unfortunately for you, not same problem.

    Are you trying this on an openvz VPS? Doesn't work with openvz.

    Did you want to test against my server? You're quite sure you're doing everything right on the phone side? Are you using certificates or pre-shared keys?

    cant believe this thread is still somewhat active. glad its still helping people out.

    as regards blend i am going to guess it has something to do with the changes bb made in 10.3.1. It appears bb services, like bbm voice calling and such worked on previous versions with the vpn connected, but not something has changed. from whats been posted above it also appears the vpn works with android and bbm voice calls. so it has to be something that bb changed with the new version os

    have to wait for someone to figure out what was changed and try to make it work again. sorry I could not be of more help but im just happy this thread is still going strong and I just had to post something. I'm actually going through it to see if I can setup the vpn with strongswan and certificates.

    i was interested in this because of what was said as a side note in security now.
    Security Now 509 | TWiT.TV


    it talked about this website which will supposedly provide free certificates. I know I can create my own, but I am wondering about getting the vpn working with publicly issued certs.

    https://letsencrypt.org/

    if i learn anything new not posted in this thread already ill keep you posted

    as a side note, found a really interesting use for both VPN's and AWS. Got it working in under an hour, works good to.

    So if your like me and have a crappy laptop, and dont ever plan on upgrading it yet occasionally want to play some highend games, aws can do that. It works along with a VPN, Win2k Server, and Steam. Cost is about $0.50/hr. You also need 10mbit wired or 5ghz wireless net connect

    Run your own high-end cloud gaming service on EC2

    In his setup I used zerotier option and realvnc viewer for setup. He gives good tips and links to expand on other info. I am not living in the states so my ping ranged from 90ms to 100ms. Not the greatest but it works nicely. You need Steam and you can play any steam game you own or they offer for demo or free. Cost is about $0.50/hr. Not bad, for those who used to go to arcades, I wish 50 cents would last me an hour of gaming.

    OK, back to VPN things. Does anyone have clear tutorial on Strongswan installation for OpenWRT? I have Asus RT-N56U router at home and it now runs Padavan's modded firmware (based on Asus's OpenWRT). Generally, as it runs 24/7 and has got pretty much unused potential in MHz and MB, I could load it with Strongswan. The setups I found were not really nice enough to script them. I never got it working.
    Any additional info would be welcome. I could test it using my gear and publish it on GitHub as well.

    Has anyone done this with strongswan 5.3.5? There have been a lot of updates and I'd like to use the latest software. I tried following the script but I'm missing something. I'm able to connect to the server, but I can't get out. I believe I have done everything correctly but I have a feeling somehow iptables is causing the trouble.

    Actually, it looks like a DNS issue. I can access websites via IP but not by name. The configuration for strongswan changed a bit it looks like and recommends putting the dns entries in another file, which I did, but no luck.
