Posted on 2009-07-01
Last Modified: 2013-11-16

I am having problems trying to get my netgear FVS114 create a vpn tunnel to a WatchGuard X1250e Firewal.

I have set up numerous vpn connections using draytek vigor, zyxel routers etc to my Wathcguard firewall with no problems yet this Netgear FVS114 is a pain! I have known a FVS114 to work with Watchguard so it has to be something I am doing yet I cannot figure out what - any help would really be appreciated - if someone has any howto guides etc on how to set up these two firewalls to work together.....

The logs indicate that phase II is not going through; please make sure that the settings are identical and the remote/local network settings are correct.
Also, things like DPD or PFS is set should match both ends.

Please check and revert.

Thank you.
