Something really weird is going on here....The vpn will come up, then drop then all of a sudden come up again. I'm thinking there is a negotiation problem. Heres the info from my pix config, which works perfectly for wrv54g routers and other pix firewalls. Tunnel Policy is default esp-aes-256-md5, tunnel life of 1 hour, and no pfs I have two IKE policies: Des md5 dh-2 preshare 3600 lifetime aes-des md5 dh-5 preshare 3600 lifetime ike is enable on the outside identity is set to address and nat traversal is enabled Nat keepalive is set to 60 the des md5 ike is for wrv54gs the des aes-des is for pix's The preshared key is setup with noxuath and no mode config So thats how my pix is configured, works FLAWLESSLY with wrv54g and pixes. Here's the wrv200 config: tunnel a tunnel enabled gave it a name nat-t is disabled local is a subnet remote is a subnet gateway is an ip address (FQDN does not friggen work!) The only things I changed in ike was my pre shared key and isa and ipsec times are changed to 3600 Dead Peer Detection is turned off If Ike Fail is off anti replay is off Global nat is disabled. The vpn will come up...last for 15 mins or so, and then drop again. The vpn log shows the following...but i'm not 100% where I can even fix it. 042 [Wed 11:26:55] packet from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:500: ignoring informational payload, type NO_PROPOSAL_CHOSEN 043 [Wed 11:26:55] packet from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:500: received and ignored informational message Any help would be appreciated. If I can get the vpn to work this will be a great box for me with the improved wireless.
