VPN Ipsec : random disconnections



  • Hi guys,

    I have a virtual machine with pfsennse 2.1.4-RELEASE which manages my different networks.
    I configured 8 vpn tunnels to my different sites.
    Everything has worked during some months.  Since a few weeks, VPNs randomly disconnects.
    When it is happened I can't make it UP from pfsense side.  I need to disconnect it from remote side, then VPN is automatically up.
    The VPN seems to be UP from remote side and DOWN from pfsense side.
    I have the same problem with 3 of 4 VPNs (remote fixed & dynamic IP) with netasq & zyxel firewall.
    It really happens randomly….

    Please find below some logs from pfsense :

    racoon: [XXXXX]: [REMOTE IP] ERROR: error message: '"Could not find acceptable proposal C'.
    racoon: ERROR: "REMOTE IP" give up to get IPsec-SA due to time up to wait.
    racoon: [XXXXX]: INFO: initiate new phase 2 negotiation: pfsense IP[500]<=>REMOTE IP[500]
    racoon: [XXXXX]: [REMOTE IP] ERROR: notification NO-PROPOSAL-CHOSEN received in informational exchange.
    racoon: [XXXXX]: [REMOTE IP] ERROR: error message: '"Could not find acceptable proposal 1Q1'.

    Remote error :

    NO PROPOSAL CHOSEN - PHASE 2 PROPOSAL MISMATCH

    If someone can help me it would be great :)

    Thanks in advance



  • Problem solved?



  • I changed the timeout of the VPN both sides and it works better.  It happens less times but still problems sometimes.  I need to disconnect it from remote side, then VPN is automatically up.
    Really strange…
