RVL200 - Lock up when opening IPSec tunnel

    Hi all,

    I had an RVL200 running an IPSec tunnel against a Watchguard firewall which ran fine for months. As the Watchguard died I thought it was clever to replace it by an RVL200.
    But as soon as I set up the IPSec tunnel on the 2nd box and connect to the first RVL200 (or vice versa) one or both boxes completely lock up after 15-20 seconds.
    That means: Boxes run well, I enable IPSec, the tunel opens (I ping the opposite boxs internal IP), boxes lock up after 15-20 seconds.
    Boxes lock up means not accessible anymore from internal or external IP nor through the tunnel. Powering off and on solves it until the next IPSec tunnel is established.
    I also tried a 3rd box /w identical setup. My firmwares are and

    Have you got any idea why RVL200s do not work together and how to solve that?

    Thank you, Frank

    P.S. I tried different IPSec setups, the one I have now is:
    IP only - IP only
    IKE /w preshared key
    28800 s
    28800 s
    Password: 30 chracters
    NetBIOS broadcast
    Dead Peer Detection (DPD) Interval 10 seconds
    NAT Traversal
