IPSEC between Checkpoint NGXR65 and Pfsense 1.2.2



  • Hi there,

    We're trying to setup an IPSEC tunnel between a Pfsense box and a Checkpoint firewall.

    On both sides the settings are the same for phase 1 and 2 (3des, MD5) .

    Still the tunnel does not go online.

    Pfsense is showing the following error.
    –---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Nokia coming up with this error.

    IKE: Main Mode no common authentication methods between myself and peer (PFsense)

    Is there anyone who succesfully setup an ipsec connection between Pfsense and Checkpoint ?

    Thanks in advance!



  • okee,

    changed all the settings to des, sha1.

    checkpoint giving the following error in the logs.

    IKE: Main Mode Failed to match proposal: Transform: 3DES, MD5, Pre-shared secret, Group2 (1024 bit) Reason: Wrong value for: Encryption Algorithm

    Pfsense still the same error.

    Anyone a solution  ???



  • Set up a tunnel between Pfsense and a Windows machine, that works like a charm.

    Why not between pfsense and checkpoint  :(



  • Got the tunnel up after playing with the settings and upgrading to 1.3.3.

    Only traffic flows just from one site to the other not in reverse i think al the traffic get natted.

    Can't adjust any settings on the checkpoint site tommorow i check it out.
