Cisco PIX 515 UL is the firewall.

I am trying to set up some site-to-site VPNs. The Corporate site is where the PIX is, and the remote sites are all using 3Com OfficeConnect VPN Firewalls. So I have existing configuration to use but it doesn't match up to the pix and I can't get the VPN connection established.

Here is the config on the 3com: http://www.ianlan.com/screenshots/cisco/3com_vpn1_settings.JPG

Here is the config I've started on the PIX: http://www.ianlan.com/screenshots/cisco/cisco_vpn1_settings.JPG

Here is the Access Rules that I have added to allow VPN connections on the outside interface. http://www.ianlan.com/screenshots/cisco/cisco_acl_list.JPG

What am I doing wrong, what do I need to add?

one outstanding misconfig is that the 3com is set to 3DES and the pix is set to DES

retype your preshared keys and also check that both are in DH group 2

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Freya28: Yep, I've been playing with it and didn't change it for the screenshots. (concerning the DES and 3DES setting) I've corrected it and saved the config.

I also typed the key again and confirmed that both are in DH group 2.
