Although I have never tried this; but as IPSec is standard I think this should work; if you already have the hardware and software; give it a try and we can troubleshoot based on logs if needed.

Thank you.

I was wondering if you comment exactly what settings you used and what menu entries from the Policy Manager you used.  We have an x700 and the replacement device waiting.  we want to resolve this first in plans to upgrade the whole system profile to the new box.
