DMVPN Tunnel not coming up at hub

Unanswered Question

I'm using DocID 41940 as guidance.

Currently one hub, two satellites. Configured in accordance with reference configs on pages 25-28 of the downloaded PDF.

Problem: Hub Site NHRP does not appear to be coming online. Also, Tunnel0 at the hub is showing state of Up/Down.

NHRP on site 1 is up as is the tunnel.

No routes are being exchanged, though this is expected since the hub tunnel does not appear operational

What am I missing. I'm sure its something silly, but I've been beating on this for a couple of weeks, and I'm just not seeing it.

Here are is the config (Attached). Culled from the cisco document noted above.

Oh, and by the way, I finally saw the error.... on the actual routers, all the interfaces are FAST ethernet. When I pasted the configs in, I negelected to change the entry from 'tunnel source Ethernet0' to 'tunnel source FASTethernet0' on the hub.

GAWD... I looked and looked and looked, but somehow it just never registered till just now. I need new eyes or something.

Ah well. I knew it was simple.

"Oh, and by the way, I finally saw the error.... on the actual routers, all the interfaces are FAST ethernet...... "

So is it working now? Btw why you have not permitted ISAKMP udp traffic on the incoming ACLs on all routers?

AFAIK, it should break it for sure. On a stateful firewall like CBAC,ASA/PIX you can sometimes get away with it, if the side from the 'inside' is initiating the ISAKMP udp connection the return traffic is automatically allowed back because of the 'state table'. But since these are stateless packet filters (Access Lists) it would be required.
