From the message on the concentrator that the user is authenticated I would believe that it is getting part way through the negotiation, but then something fails.

I faced a situation recently that might be somewhat similar. We found that there was a small detail that was different in the way that the client was configured from the way that the concentrator was configured. Can you check the details of how your clients and concentrator are configured?

After rebooting my concentrator its working fine. But in need small solution

I have 2 contrators at two diffrent locations(A & B), I want use one has Primary and otherone as secondary.

A -- Should be primary

B- should be secondary

There is tunnel beteen A and B

Config is same at both the ends includes redius,groups,access etc.

pl. let me know is there any possibility to the same.

Am I correct in assuming that your concentrator is one of the Cisco 3000 series of concentrators? If so I believe that there is a way to achieve what you describe. Have the users configure their client with the address of A as the concentrator. In the configuration of the groups on the concentrator there is an option to specify a backup concentrator and to push that information to the client. So configure A to specify B as the backup concentrator and to push that to the clients. When you do this the client will attempt to connec to A. If the connection to A fails then the client will attempt to connect to B.

Could you pl. let me know the option where it is exactly as i have checked. But no luck.

Thanks in advance

In the concentrator, under configuration, choose the User Management tab, and then choose the Groups option. This should open a page which displays the groups that are configured. Choose the group that you want to configure and click on modify. This should open the configuration of the group. Click the Client Config tab which should bring up options about the client. One of these options is IPSec Backup Servers. In that option there is a pull down menu and you would select the option for Use List Below and input the address of the concentrator which will be the backup.

At that point the concentrator should begin to push to the clients the configured backup server. After you make the change remember to save the config.
