How to configure the RPNv1 gateway on an RPNv2 Dedibox

Reviewed on 31 July 2023Published on 29 November 2021

If you have services that are available only on the RPNv1 (RPN SAN, server not compatible with RPNv2 etc), you can add a compatibility layer through your console.


This feature does currently not work with the RPN VPN and could cause problems across your whole RPN Group if you add it.

In the RPNv2 management console, click on the corresponding button, and select an RPNv1 group that will be able to access it. Once you have done that, you can either restart your DHCLIENT on your RPNv1 servers for them to get the new routes or manually add a route to through your already existent RPN Gateway.

You can do it with the following snippet:

ip route add via $RPNGW

Make sure to replace $RPNGW with your actual RPN Gateway.

On the RPNv2 servers, you will be provided with an RPNv1 subnet usable on your VLAN ID. If, for example, you get the following block:

  • The IP will be your gateway on the RPNv1 network for the RPNv2 server
  • The IPs can be used on your RPNv2 servers
  1. Configure your interfaces as following in /etc/network/interfaces (on a Debian based machine):

    iface eth1.3900:0 inet static

    The name of your network adapter may be different, depending on your OS version. You can use ifconfig to display information about your network adapters.

  2. Add the route for the whole network:

    ip route add via

Following you find a schema of how this works for all your RPN services (v1 and v2):
