VPN unknown reason

I am having an issue connecting a VPN to a Cisco concentrator from a router. Whenever I try and initiate the connection I get an unknown delete reason. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: VPN unknown reason

In most cases, IPSec VPN traffic does not pass through ISA Server 2000. However, Cisco Concentrator 3300, with the latest firmware updates, uses "transparent tunneling" that uses User Datagram Protocol (UDP) ports 500, 4500, and 10000 to communicate securely between VPN clients and concentrators. By creating these protocol definitions, you enable the SecureNat client to connect to the Cisco VPN server through ISA Server as all traffic is passed as UDP traffic. According to the Cisco Transparent tunneling technology, this traffic can traverse Network Address Translation (NAT) firewalls
