Hy Vincent

Thanks for your quick answer.
I will try too do a synchronized reboot of both devices. At the moment I
can't do this, because both systems are in use.

Is it possible that the problem I have s'got something to do with the
m0n0walls systemtime? Because I wasn't able to change it to the right time.
At the moment the systemdate is Jan 1 04:26:26. and it normally must be
nearly Mar 5 11:23:00. 
The NTP Time server is set to pool.ntp.org and I also choosed the right
time-zone (Europe/Zurich)

Thank you very much

That's a typical error when Phase 1 is not ready (main mode takes a lot 
of time compared to aggressive) and phase 2 is trying to negotiate.

Try to do a synchronized reboot of both routers. Besides that, I'd use a 
1-day (86400 seconds) P1 lifetime value to minimize such annoyances.

I personally reboot both tunnel ends on every Sunday at 4:00 AM. I use 
curl and a cron job on a 24/24 running server and use 86400 lifetime 
value for Phase 1. This helps to keep IPsec Phase 1 synchronized. In 
addition, I use Fred Wright's pinger kludge to trigger the IPsec tunnel 
at boot time. Tell me if you're interested.

You have to be aware that IPsec and racoon's implementation in 
particular is not perfect. For example, if you have to reboot one 
router, you can't be 100% sure the tunnel will re-establish quickly...

Good luck!
