VPN set up with a Watchguard x1250e and a Netgear Prosafe FVS318g

I have set a VPN between a Watchguard x1250e and a Netgear Prosafe FVS318G. The IPSec SA connection is established and packets are traveling back and forth but I cannot see either network from either side. I'm not that familiar with VPNs so any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I can send whatever logs or settings you would need to review.

I am using 3DES-SHA1, Group 2 (1024 bit), and a pre-shared key. Again, the VPN says connected and packets are going back and forth.

    Accepted Solution

    If you have not used wizard please ensure you have added a policy on WG to allow traffic between local and remote networks.

    Also ensure that gateway and tunnel are configured properly:

    If all the setting are there; please send sanitized configuration screenshots and logs from both the ends.

    Thank you.
