Removing peer from peer table failed, no match

    I've been seeing in our firewall alerts the following message:

<163>%PIX-3-713902: IP =, Removing peer from peer table failed, no match.

I'm a little green when it comes to troubleshooting this but is this someone who is trying to establish a VPN tunnel with us? I've blocked the IP from further attempts but wanted to be for sure.

    There should be additional information in the logs above this message.  It is probably an issue with authentication or the group name.

    Do you have any VPN users complaining that they can't connect?

    The only VPN that we do on the Pix is site to site. We have a Sonicwall VPN that handles each of our users.

    It sounds like it was someone looking for a hole in your securty.

    From this; it looks like that IP came from Tiwan.  :)
