We are currently aiming to connect a Draytek VigorPro 5510 with a Draytek Vigor 3900 using an IPSec tunnel.  The 5510 is the dial out router and the 3900 the dial in.

The configs are as follows:
IKE Phase1 Proposal: AE128 G1
Authentication: SHA1/MD5
Phase2 Proposal 3DES without auth
Auth: All
Perfect forward Secret: Disabled

The error I can see in the Syslog are: Payload malformed and Payload malfornmed after IV

Were stumped on this one and would appreciate some input

According to this:

The message "Payload Malformed" was received during the IKE exchange. It means the Phase 1 algorithms doesn't match the gateway configuration.

Change the proposal on Phase1 to something else (on both Drayteks) and re-test.

There is a well written article by Draytek for IPSEC VPN Connections - See here:
