IPSec Tunneling informations needed

Unanswered Question
Aug 30th, 2007

I have a Watchguard Firebox 3 in a remote site and a PIX 515e on my local site and want to have them communicate each other via a IPsec Tunnel and I don't really know how to perform that!

Does anyone can tell me the path ?


I have this problem too.

Hi Guy, I could not comment on the Watchguard Firebox firewall on the how to stablish a vpn tunnel between two sites, however, you can take a look at some examples on how to configure site-to-site vpn between two pixes, read the principle on site-to-site vpn tunnel and you could get some support from the firebox vendor on how to create a site to site tunnel on their boxes.

Example of lan-to-lan vpn tunnel (CLI )


Example of lan-to-lan vpn tunnel (PDM )


Also, for the PIX515 side ensure you have

proper VPN-3DES-AES license as this is needed to enable site to site vpn tunnels.

Thanks Jorge,

I already have the proper VPN-3DES-AES license since I have installed a tunnel between our Europe Office and North America one. Thanks for the suggestion. I will have a look on Whatchguard side.
