Hello
my name is Stefano D'Alisera and I admin a lan/wan based on Netware 6/6.5
and Border Manager 3.8 sp3 servers.

The 2 border manager servers are in the same tree but one is in a
different OU under the same tree.
They are working fine using them as proxy servers.

Now, I'm trying to start a Site to Site VPN and I have a big problem.

I have done a Site to Site configuration, following the example on Craig
Johnson's bible "A beginner's guide to Border Manager 3.x" (using also
the same IP for the tunneling). The configuration has finished well,
without problems.... but when I launch "STARTVPN" on my master server ,
I receive the following error:

error FFFFFB3DAUTHGW - Failed to acquire the VPN Security
Keys ........... and the the server abends going down in 2 minutes.

I've searched on novell support finding the tid 10097599, but al seems to
be good, I've only a doubt regarding filters that I have left as default.
(disabled but the TCP/IP Filtering Support in inetcfg is enabled).

my startvpn.ncf file

LOAD VPMASTER.NLM
LOAD RUNVPN.NLM
LOAD NETDB.NLM
LOAD VPMON.NLM
LOAD AUTHGW.NLM
LOAD IKE.NLM

Now, first of all, sorry my terrible english.
Do You have an idea to solve my problem ?


Thanks in advance
