I have service I need to make VPN connections to.
I have this working perfectly fine in windows, setup was quick, easy and straightforward.
I am now trying to achieve the same connection in Linux using OpenSWAN but my connection is failing with:
117 "MyConnection" #115: STATE_QUICK_I1: initiate 010 "MyConnection" #115: STATE_QUICK_I1: retransmission; will wait 20s for response 010 "MyConnection" #115: STATE_QUICK_I1: retransmission; will wait 40s for response 031 "MyConnection" #115: max number of retransmissions (2) reached STATE_QUICK_I1. No acceptable response to our first Quick Mode message: perhaps peer likes no proposal 000 "MyConnection" #115: starting keying attempt 2 of an unlimited number, but releasing whack
I'm not exactly sure what this means, though have Googled a lot though I'm guessing I have some configuration parameters wrong.
In windows I have the following configuration defined (everything else is default)
Username and password
PSK defined in advanced options of the L2TP/IPSec connection
Require Encryption turned on
Unencrypted password (PAP) checked
And it all just works - unfortunately I'm not sure how to translate these settings fully to relevant ipsec.conf parameters.
The VPN I'm connecting to is a Cisco meraki MX appliance if that helps...
I guess if anyone has a sample config for an openSWAN connection to Cisco meraki MX appliance that would be a helpful starting point, but more specifically if someone can translate the windows VPN settings to ipsec.conf options that would be the most useful thing
