I am troubleshooting certificate issues on our VPN 3000 series concentrator:

I have two laptops set up with the Cisco VPN client, both using the same VPN certificate.

One laptop can log in successfully to the VPN, the other attempts to connect but fails before the username/password prompt even appears.

The following entry is found on the VPN concentrator for the failed connection:

18275 10/08/2009 09:46:53.150 SEV=5 IKE/79 RPT=3174
Group [Contractors]
Validation of certificate successful

Connection terminated for peer .
Reason: Peer Terminate, Administratively Disconnected.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for troubleshooting this?
