I have a sonicwall 3500 router along with a Cisco WRVS-4400N at another clients, we are having issues connecting these 2 devices together.

The cisco proposals are numbers rather than my sonicwall has Group 1, 2, 5, 15 not exactly sure what those exactly translate to number wise.

So anyways, I also noticed the cisco won't do very high of encryption as the max was 3DES so with this being said has any one had luck connecting a Sonicwall Router to a Cisco WRVS-4400N router together, I am just wanting to do a single IP address not a couple IP's or a whole range.
