RedHat ES3 IPSEC and SnapGear IPSEC

By support ·
I have several SnapGear units talking to redhat 9 using freeswan ipsec fine. Both are using Freeswan although the snapgear is of course embedded linux on a coldfire processor.

The new RedHat ES3 ( Enterprise Server 3 )has ipsec backported from the 2.6 Kernel and "racoon" instead of Freeswan. There is a nice ipsec setup tab in the new redhat-config-network gui.

I am attempting to get them to talk using a preshared secret. The Snapgear reports that it is negotiating Phase 2 whilst the RedHat system seems to be stuck "Finding a policy". Alas I am not that familiar with debuging this type of connection.

the setup and log file output are at:

Can anyone help.

1. you may want to check out if racoon is vpn certified by VPNC.

2. Make sure that the configuration in phase 2 is the same for both the devices.

3. Might need to get help from snapgear themself.

Good day.
