VPN_HW-1-PACKET_ERROR: Still a bug?

Unanswered Question
Nov 6th, 2007

I manage a Cisco 2801 router and I have 2 VPNs, one with a Zyxel firewall and the other with a Cisco ASA 5510 firewall.

From time to time, I get the following VPN-related error message on my syslog server:

%VPN_HW-1-PACKET_ERROR: slot: 0 Packet Encryption/Decryption error, Invalid Packet:srcadr=<ipRemoteVPNPeer>,dstadr=<ipLocalVPNPeer>,size=1488,handle=0x5805

The packet sizes vary. I get the errors on both VPNs.

I read in another post that this was a bug. Is it still the case?

I have IOS version 12.4(3e).

I have this problem too.

Has anyone ever got this error message at all?

How can I know whether it is a bug or not?
