End-to-End VPN Tunnels



  • I have been having some problems getting my end-to-end VPN tunnels configured.  We currently have a SonicWall and the goal is to completly replace that without having to re-configure the VPN endpoints that are all connected to it.  I have the connection set up both in pfSense and in a Netgear FVG318 with the same settings for all the encryption types, psk, mode, DH Group, etc.  My current tunnel to the SonicWall does work correctly.  However, I can't get the tunnel to establish to the pfSense firewall.  On the pfSense side, I see this in my IPSEC log:

    On the Netgear side, I see this:

    I have replaced the actual IP addresses for obvious reasons but they DO match the IPs on both ends.  Does anybody have any idea what's going on here?  Thanks for your help!



  • If I use my IP address, I am able to get it connect without a problem, however since my IP changes I need to be able to use my DDNS.  My boss actually caught this, the 'unya' is actually part of my DDNS name of: dbUNYArd.homeip.net.  Is there something I am missing here?
