ipsec VPN Tunnel between Debian host and Cisco ASA

Svyat
Level 1
Level 1

Hello,

We trying to setup tonnel between our Debian host and Cisco ASA 5585X.

The phase 1 passed well and we have established connection.

Howewer, we have error on phase 2

Mar 11 20:04:34 host charon[15239]: 09[IKE] received NO_PROPOSAL_CHOSEN notify, no CHILD_SA built
Mar 11 20:04:34 host charon[15239]: 09[IKE] failed to establish CHILD_SA, keeping IKE_SA

We know that is wrong esp config - but can't solve it.

Could you help me please?

could you run this command on ASA and display the output

!

debug crypto isakmp 127

Hi,

 

   Verify that your IPsec settings are matching on both sides. If that is done and still doesn't work, i would lower the security level (like disable PFS or use a lower group number, use 3des instead of aes, and MD5 instead of SHA), sometimes, the most secure algorithms are supported to be configured but may fail to work. 

 

Regards,

Cristian Matei.

3des is a weak encryption. lower down mean you compromising the network.

please do not forget to rate.

Hi,

 

 @Sheraz.Salim The recommendation to lower down the security level, was only temporary for testing purposes, to avoid available features that don't actually work. In my experience, it happened a lot that whenever i was an early adopter of some new technology (maybe not that new, but nobody was using it to detect bugs, like for example using the strongest DH groups, or EH), that it didn't work, due to bugs.

 

Regards,

Cristian Matei.

Thanks for the answer.
The ASA is on provider side - so I can't change group or security settings.
I'll try to get debug log.

debug crypto isakmp 127
debug crypto ipsec 127
debug crypto peer condition x.x.x.x

Can you check, maybe I made a mistake in the config regarding the inputs?

Hello,

 

It seems that the problem was on the provider side.
We managed to get phase 2.
Thank you for the answers.

 

By the way @Sheraz.Salim, right first command:

debug crypto condition peer x.x.x.x
