    when i try to delete line 22 on racoon.conf end try to start recoon it replaces racoon.conf which the old one, end fails again…


  • nobody an idea?

    or can i post it on RedMine?



  • Yep, looks like a bug.

    The syntax should be like:
    split_network include 10.x.y.z/24;



  • what do you have set in your phase 2 for mobile clients for local network? It populates that line from that value.



  • my phase 2, nothing configured about networks. (see attachment)



  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    You can't do transport mode with mobile clients. I'm not sure why it let you select that.

    Switch to tunnel mode.



  • Sorry for the late reply, i was out of commission for a bit…

    thanks jimp, that did fix it...
