Ipsec, iphone and xauth. Findings.



  • Regarding ipsec xauth + rsa, for me it works, but randomly and most often it doesn't. Running racoon in the foreground with debug and verbose seems to make it work more often.

    Seems like this guy had the same problem a "while" back. He tracks it down to this.

    I don't have a solution and I wont spend any more time figuring this out, I thought it was worth sharing since others seems to be having the same problem.

    Would be interesting to hear from peoples experience with this, anyone got it to work flawlessly?



  • I have the same problem.  I'm looking into rolling a custom PFSense just to get this fixed.  Have you found a better solution yet?  It seems to be dependent upon the speed of the connection to the client as well.

    Sorry, no soloution yet. Not sure where to take it from here.

    Regarding the connection speed, I have seen the same thing, seems as if it works more often on a faster connection.
