Re: VPN Concentrator 3030, troubleshooting problem

Your "Main Mode" IKE negotiations are failing. Check your IKE proposals to match on both ends.

Re: VPN Concentrator 3030, troubleshooting problem

MM = Main Mode, FSM = Finite State Machine

In this event there will usually be some other information the represents the state machine condition the generated the message. Usually the events prior to this one will give you a better idea of what caused the message - not always a failure indication, sometimes just a result.

The second event represents the concentrator is trying to bring up a L2L tunnel; the the 3k is initiating the connection to a defined peer based on receiving interesting traffic - shows the local subnet sending and the remote subnet that should be receiving (proxy). There was no tunnel to carry the traffic so the 3k is trying to build one.
