What error messages do you see on these two devices?



. %CRYPTO-4-RECVD_PKT_MAC_ERR: decrypt: mac verify failed for connection id=[dec]

The MAC verify processing failed. This might be caused by the use of the wrong key by either party during the MAC calculations. This activity could be considered a hostile event.

Recommended Action: Contact the peer administrator.

As Paulo indicates, this issue has been raised numerous times. It is a cosmetic bug that unfortunately generates a lot of useless syslog messages. I've found that the current 12.4 release fixes the problem on my 1841's. I suspect it is fixed on other platforms as well.
