We have taken on a new customer who has 4 remote sites which are connected via VPN router to router.

1 site has stopped working. When looking at the VPN logs I get the following messages...

I have tried to create another VPN using the same settings but still get the same error message. As far as we can tell nothing has changed as the other 3 sites are working fine.

I have update the ADSL and Router firmware on the Netgear Prosafe.

Can anyone help me try and find out whats going on?

Also - look at the logs on the other end, since it may contain more info.

Do you have any saved config ?
Can you compare the settings of the other routers ?

What has changed ?

It may be cheaper to buy another router to test with,

ALso - is there a Dynamic address  involved ( not a static IP ), that may have changed ?

After some hours of going over the settings again and again I found the PassPhrase to be incorrect on the D-Link Router.

Recreated the rule again and now connects OK.
