The Phase 1 Policies have been agreed with both peers, the responder is waiting for the initiator to send it its keying information. I've seen two things cause this.

1. Different Vendors equipment talking the the ASA, or simply the version of OS on the ASA have been different. 8.2 is very old!

2. There is a comms error, check there's no router with firewall capabilities in the link.

both devices are firewalls.  8.2 is old coded  but it is does work
