ERROR: in ipsec between RV042 and PFbox 2.1

  • Hi

    getting following error on pfbox :
    ERROR: exchange Identity Protection not allowed in any applicable rmconf.

    getting following error on rv042:
    Cannot respond to IPsec SA request because no connection is known for…yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy===

    I have checked both sites are on Main mode

    Using Pfsense 2.1 and the other Router is a RV042, haven't been able to get pfsense to work with it, can someone please post the screen shots of their settings so I can copy them.

    my both sites are on static IP.


  • adding SS for my setup

    in P2 for pfsense I just went ahead and ticked all to try everything..

    i'd really prefer if it were in main mode but not even aggressive is connecting

    You'd probably have more luck moving to whatever rv042 support venue they provide.

  • i kinda figured out what the issue was and it may be something to do with the 2.1 release, maybe a feature or gui issue which was causing this problem.

    i did get it working. i will post screenshots for both sites in the morning.

    EDIT: Sorry, will post SS next week as I need to travel to another city and only have access to cellphone.
    anyway the issue was very simple.

    In Pfsense Phase1 of my identifier and peer identifier I selected my IP and peer IP tabs as I assumed it would be the default public IPs, but that was not the case. I had to select "IP address" in both tabs and manually give my and peer public IP.

    it started working.

    there is a lot of search for RV042 - pfsense setting screenshots, so I will make sure to put them up soon.
