Ipsec logging



  • First how do I get rid of the informational message in the ipsec logs.  pfsense 2.2… not happening on other 2.1.5 firewalls.

    eb 13 11:31:26 charon: 15[ENC] generating INFORMATIONAL_V1 request 3568627374 [ HASH N(DPD_ACK) ]
    Feb 13 11:31:26 charon: 15[ENC] parsed INFORMATIONAL_V1 request 2576479024 [ HASH N(DPD) ]
    Feb 13 11:31:26 charon: 15[NET] received packet: from x.x.x.x[500] to y.y.y.y[500] (92 bytes)
    Feb 13 11:31:16 charon: 15[NET] sending packet: from y.y.y.y[500] to x.x.x.x[500] (92 bytes)
    Feb 13 11:31:16 charon: 15[ENC] generating INFORMATIONAL_V1 request 1103014781 [ HASH N(DPD_ACK) ]

    Second, I setup a ipsec vpn tunnel between our 2.1.5 firewall and this new 2.2 firewall 4 days ago.  Well the last 3 mornings, tunnel stops passing traffic.  All status's are up in ipsec vpn status.  Problem is corrected when I restart ipsec on the 2.2 side.

    Our alert system notified me by email it was down at 6:32…  I restarted ipsec at 6:35.  I would imagine there is something in the logs just before 6:32.. However, I'm no expert in this stuff.  Could someone help me out?

    Attached log, sorry for the formating.

  • Lower the Message encoding level.



  • Sorry, I don't see where to change that in the web admin.



  • vpn->ipsec->settings



  • All settings there are set to silent…
