Hi all,

I have a VPN setup between a Cisco Pix and a Sonicwall. The Pix in on the ohter end managed by the vendor we use.

Anyway, I keep seeing error in the log for the VPN stating "Payload processing failed".

Does anyone know a cause of this?

My suspicion is that perhaps they have NAT turned on on their end?

I am not very familar with PIX firewalls, but I have many VPN setup bewteen Sonicwall and Cisco products and they have no errors. My gut is that this is something on the PIX end, but I am not 100% certain.
