IPSec not stopping initiator role, even if reset to respond only



  • Hi,

    I can't get a Site-2-Site connection with a reset (checked -> unchecked) checkbox 'Enable this option to never initiate this connection from this side, only respond to incoming requests.' to stop initiating connections to the partner site. This is interfering with the connection as both are trying to initiate the connection. Even after a restart of the IPSec service, the connection (pfsense) starts initiating again. Only a full reboot of the machine stops the behaviour… Is there another way to reset the connection or is it a bug?

    I'm using PFsense 2.3.1_1

    Greetings,
    Gesture.
