 Subject:  M0n0wall to M0n0wall Ipsec tunnel does not connect
 Date:  Mon, 16 Oct 2006 23:38:20 -0700
I read the manual, followed the example configuration
http://doc.m0n0.ch/handbook/ipsec-tunnels.html, and scoured
six months of Ipsec postings in these lists without learing
what my problem is.

Work M0n0wall has a public IP on WAN which is also the VPN
Home M0n0wall uses DHCP for its WAN IP but it is usually
consistent for six months or more.  I use my domain name as
the identifier at home.
The LAN addresses do not overlap.
The encryption, authentication and pre-shared key settings
are identical at both sites.  I really did follow the
example in the manual closely.
But the manual only promised, without delivering the
firewall rules.  I put in permit eveerything on both LAN
interfaces and permit ESP any any on both WAN interfaces.  I
also added permit UDP, any source, port 500, any
destination, any port on both WAN interfaces in response to
a prior Ipsec thread.  I also tried substituting 3DES for
Blowfish, MD5 for SHA1, PFS key group off instead of 2, and
main negotiation for aggressive, all to no avail.

To review:

Home tunnel settings:	local subnet: 			LAN
				remote subnet
				remote GW (public)

Work tunnel settings:		local subnet
LAN subnet
				remote subnet
				remote GW (via DHCP)

A traceroute from one gateway to the other has nine hops.

The SPD chart on both M0n0walls looks right but there has
never been any thing under SAD on either.
