IPsec tunnel established, no traffic passsing through



  • I followed the tutorial for creating an IPsec tunnel between a static and a dynamic IP. The tunnel is up, and I can see the IPsec status on both ends, however I can't pass any traffic through it. Specifically, I've been trying to ping things on either side, and nothing is going through.

    I've got wide open rules on the IPSec interface on both ends. (* * *  * kinda rules.) Is there something else I'm missing?

    I'm using 1.2 Beta 1.



  • I'm seeing in the logs of my static end:

    racoon: ERROR: such policy does not already exist: "192.168.0.0/22[0] 192.168.5.0/24[0] proto=any dir=out"
    racoon: ERROR: such policy does not already exist: "192.168.5.0/24[0] 192.168.0.0/22[0] proto=any dir=in"



  • Any suggestions?



  • In lieu of any advice, I've checked everything over and over again. I can see the connection being made in the IPSec logs:

    (display backwards, most recent at top). On the other firewall things look good too, but still I can't get any traffic to go across.

    On the dynamic IP pfsense, I've created wide open rules for all the interfaces. On the static pfsense I've made a wide open rule for IPSec only, and don't know if anything else is necessary.



  • Why does one of the ends have a private IP-adress? Is there some double natting going on and one end is behind another router/firewall? If so make sure this router supports IPSEC passthrough.



  • My static end is behind a router provided by my ISP. There's no security on it, it's wide open.



  • It must be at least natting which can cause problems as you have a private IP behind it.
