Peplink pfsense ipsec vpn



  • Hi,

    i am unable to configure Peplink Balance 380 with Pfsense for site-to-site IPsec VPN. The configuration is pretty straight forward but it simply won't finish phase 1 :(

    It is always this:

    ERROR: notification NO-PROPOSAL-CHOSEN received in unencrypted informational exchange.

    Since it is a multi wan router i did bind IPsec to a single WAN interface with fixed IP so i don't think problem is there.

  • your local and remote ID on the peplink are blank, that's probably why it's replying with no proposal chosen. Fill those in with the IPs.



  • @cmb:

    I have already,i was trying without that when i Run out of options. I was trying whole day to connect without success.

    Also what is strange is that both sides found acceptable proposal, they agreed on pre-shared key and later i get ERROR: notification NO-PROPOSAL-CHOSEN received in unencrypted informational exchange. Does this make sense?

    Ah not the first time we've heard that with other products. That's a bug in Peplink, not on our side, we support every character, symbol, etc. in shared keys. One of my production VPNs runs with every letter, number and symbol in the key just to prove that always works, as people tend to not believe the problem is actually in the commercial box they paid big bucks for and not on our side.
