Unanswered Question

Hello,

A particular VPN user is getting the below error while he try to connect using Cisco vpn client (version 5.0).

Secure VPN connection terminated locally by the Client  
Reason 412: The remote peer is no longer responding.

I tried to connect VPN using the same profile and it was working fine. Other VPN users can also connect without any issue.

Below are the logs that I am getting from the VPN client:

I tried to disable  firewall, reinstall vpn client software and followed few links like http://www.lamnk.com/blog/vpn/cisco-vpn-client-reason-412-the-remote-peer-is-no-longer-responding/ but didn't find a poosible solution.

The Cisco VPN Client(x64) is installed on Server2008 Ent (x64). Please help me on this issue.

Tony

Hi Yadhu,

I had exactly the same problem a while ago and it was related to user authentication.

Have you tried the same profile and the same user credentials?

How the authentication is configured on your firewall, is it tacacs calling AD or some different config?

If that's the case you can use ASDM to test credentials. Thanks to this method I have found and resolved my issue.

Let me know please how it goes.

Regards

Mariusz

Hello Mariusz,

Thank you for your reply. I tried the same profile using the same credentials and found that it is working perfectly from my site.

AAA is configured locally on the firewall.

Is there any other things do I need to check? Please help me out.

Regards,
Tony

Hi Tony,

Happy New Year

Try to narrow the problem even more.

Have you try to login as affected user from the same network, but a different host?

Another test would be the same host, but different user profile, and so on...

While doing this you can enable debug for crypto isakmp and setup some capture matching your source IP to check if you're hitting the firewall (and also how the firewall behaves).

Regards

Mariusz

Hello Mariusz,

Happy New Year !

The issue got resolved. The problem was with the antivirus package which is installed on remote host. Now the remote user can connect without any issue. Thank you for your support

Tony
