Second IPSec VPN not starting or logging?



  • Hello everyone,

    I have two IPSec connections setup.  The first one, toCompanyA, is working fine.  The second one, toCompanyB, has a yellow x on the status screen.  The IPSec log wasn't showing anything and so I enabled debug mode for racoon.  I went back to check the logs and nothing in the log is saying anything about toCompanyB anywhere!?  I'm seeing a bunch of toCompanyA logs going back and forth though.

    It seems like either racoon isn't starting the second IPSec connection or the logs aren't showing up, or it's me.  Any ideas?



  • That means no traffic matching the SPD on that connection is being attempted. Why, not enough there to say. Maybe a wrong local and/or remote subnet in the P2, maybe you're trying to do something impossible like use a local network as a remote end of a VPN, tons of possibilities.



  • @cmb:

    I wanted to update you and let you know I got this going.  You were exactly right, just had to push some traffic to start generating errors which helped me figure out what was wrong with my config.  A continuous ping wins the day.  Thanks for your help!
