IPsec VPN Problems Between Cisco 1711 & Netgear

I am trying to set up an IPsec VPN tunnel between a Cisco 1711 and Netgear FVS318 router/firewall. Phase1 is establishing but Phase2 is not. Debug output is provided below.

Netgear Settings:

Encryption: 3DES SHA-1 with Pre-share key, DH Group 2(1024 Bit), SA Lifetime 86400sec

ESP Configuration: 3DES SHA-1

Cisco Configuration:

crypto isakmp policy 1
encr 3des
authentication pre-share
group 2
crypto isakmp key ciscotest address REMOTE_IP
crypto ipsec security-association lifetime seconds 86400
crypto ipsec transform-set vpn ah-sha-hmac esp-3des esp-sha-hmac
crypto map vpn 10 ipsec-isakmp
set peer REMOTE_IP
set transform-set vpn
match address 110
interface FastEthernet0
crypto map vpn
access-list 110 permit ip

Re: IPsec VPN Problems Between Cisco 1711 & Netgear

Phase 2 is not matching.

Make sure you use ESP instead of AH.

no crypto ipsec transform-set vpn ah-sha-hmac esp-3des esp-sha-hmac

crypto ipsec transform-set vpn esp-3des esp-sha-hmac

Please try again after clearing the SAs.



Re: IPsec VPN Problems Between Cisco 1711 & Netgear

i just took out AH as you mentioned, unfortunately it still does not work.

Re: IPsec VPN Problems Between Cisco 1711 & Netgear

Are you getting the same mismatch error in phase 2 after the change?

Is the netgear using Perfect Forward Secrecy setting on phase 2?
