VPN between Netscreen and ASA


We need to access some of the servers of our busineess partner so I am trying to establish a VPN between our Netscreen Firewall and the partner ASA. Attached are configs and scenario for both. It's failing at Phase 1 .

From netscreen side we are NATing (MIP) the private IP to Public IP which is also serving as the Peer Gateway IP for other end.

From ASA side, they have 3 servers which needs to be accessed, but they just have one Public IP which they are NATing to one of the servers.

The ASA is managed by our partner and I believe that there is a mistake in their NAT and access list config. Kindly check both the attached configs and let me know where is the issue?

Also, I dont want to use their private range i.e 10.15.3.x in my configuration as I have the same scheme in my local LAN so it possible that I could access all three of their servers with just one single System Public IP at their end?


P.S: Actual IP addresses have been changed for security purpose

VPN between Netscreen and ASA

It looks like the ASA is using IKEv1 policy 40 with aes-192 and the Netscreen is using aes128. That will cause the P1 failure.

Re the NAT, doing twice NAT at the ASA end is a good approach but I don't quite follow the logic of having 3 different sources all map to a single source will work unless you do PAT.
