VPN Tunnel ASA

I have set up serveral VPN tunnels in the past but I can't seem to get this one working. It is between a ASA 5520 on my end and a ASA 5510 on the other end. Every thing looks right. I had the other engineer check some things on his end and they also seem right. The weird thing is we set the tunnel for 3DES/MD5 encryption and when I issue the command "sh isakmp sa detail" I get the following information for the tunnel. Any ideas why it would say the encryption is AES-256/SHA?

IKE Peer: x.x.x.x
    Type    : user            Role    : initiator
    Rekey   : no              State   : AM_WAIT_MSG2
    Encrypt : aes-256         Hash    : SHA      
    Auth    : preshared       Lifetime: 0

Are you sure the crypto map matches at the other end?

>>AM_WAIT_MSG2

Somebody is in aggressive mode? by default Cisco negotiates in Main Mode like so..

hostname# show crypto isakmp sa

   Active SA: 1
    Rekey SA: 0 (A tunnel will report 1 Active and 1 Rekey SA during rekey)
Total IKE SA: 1

1   IKE Peer: 123.123.123.123
    Type    : L2L             Role    : initiator
    Rekey   : no              State   : MM_ACTIVE <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

The IPSEC tunnel may use 3DES/MD5, it is hard to tell as you only show the ISAKMP attributes...

Can you post some more details?

That is one of the things I asked him to check but he says it is ESP-3des-md5. But could that be a reason it is showing up like that?


>>Somebody is in aggressive mode? by default Cisco negotiates in Main Mode like so..

Yeah I changed to aggresive because his was set to aggresive.

Attach sanitized relevant parts of the configuration or run 'debug crypto isakmp' and 'debug crypto ipsec' and attach the output.

yeah the problem was that he gave me the wrong Peer IP. I was able to find this out issuing the deb crypto isakmp 10 command. It showed me trying to bring a tunnel up with one Peer and him trying to initiate another one with a different peer. Thanks for the help guys.
