Problems connecting via Cisco IPSec VPN client to RV180W Small Business Router

Hi,

I've been trying to set up my Cisco RV180W Router as an IPSec VPN client but have run into an issue which I'm hoping someone can help me with. I've managed to get the configuration working so that the Cisco IPSec VPN client successfully authenticates against the XAUTH user I have set on the router, however during negotiation, the client terminates with the following error message repeatedly appearing on the router: "Tue Oct 20 19:41:53 2015 (GMT +0000): [r1] [IKE] ERROR:  Local configuration for <<IP OF CLIENT>>[34360] does not have mode config".

I've read around the internet and a number of people seem to be saying that the Cisco VPN Client isn't compatible with the router, however the same happens for my iPhone VPN client.

Is there any way that this can be made to work? Below I've attached the full configuration files and log files. Thank you very much in advance.

Thank you for contacting

Thank you for contacting Cisco.

Correct, the RV180 is not compatible with the Cisco VPN Client.  The Iphone uses the Cisco VPN Client.

You could use the PPTP server on the RV180 to connect a PPTP Client.

Also, he RV180 will allow an IPsec connection to 3rd party clients.  Greenbow and Shrew Soft are 2 clients commonly used.

Thanks for your note. Can you

Thanks for your note. Can you advise which Cisco routers are able to support the Cisco VPN Client, as I'd prefer to steer clear of PPTP due to security concerns.

Hello Michael


I have the exact same problem. Im trying to use shrewsoft to connect to this but no avail

I have configured the IKE Policy etc in the server as shown in the above screenshot. 

pre-shared key configured
bringing up tunnel ...
negotiation timout occurred
tunnel disabled
detached from key daemon

I get a error everytime i connect. 

what should i set on the shrewsoft program

I set the host ip address correctly, for local identity used key identifier as well as fqdn and swapped the remote.com and local.com with the local and remote id. as well as set the pre share key.. but still struggling. :(

Unfortunately the Cisco VPN

Unfortunately the Cisco VPN Client is EOL.  See link below.

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/security/vpn-client/end_of_life_c51-680819.html

 

The only options currently in the Small Business router would be a PPTP or 3rd party IPsec client.

 

The Cisco ASA5500 series support the Cisco Anyconnect VPN Client.
