I'm trying to connect to several Cisco VPN networks using the OS X built-in VPN utility and I'm receiving an error. I have several isolated networks I connect to and they have all been working flawlessly since Snow Leopard was released. I also have 3+ co-workers who use the same settings and are not experiencing any issues.
This is the system error I receive when I try to connect:
A configuration error occurred. Verify your settings and try reconnecting.
This is the limited information from the system.log:
Oct 1 17:36:27 Computer-Name racoon: Connecting. Oct 1 17:36:27 Computer-Name racoon: IKE Packet: transmit failed. (Initiator, Aggressive-Mode Message 1). Oct 1 17:36:27 Computer-Name racoon: Disconnecting. (Connection tried to negotiate for, 0.010253 seconds). Oct 1 17:36:27 Computer-Name racoon: IKE Packets Transmit Failure-Rate Statistic. (Failure-Rate = 100.000). Oct 1 17:36:37 Computer-Name configd: SCNCController: Disconnecting. (Connection tried to negotiate for, 0 seconds).
I've been asking google and super user for help for a couple hours now, but all the solutions and issues I've found have to do with loosing an existing connection, or at least have some IKE Packet transmit successes. My system isn't even getting a chance to try to use the configuration settings (password, group, shared key, etc) I have defined. I tried to re-create the connections with the known credentials and it is still failing.
I tried repairing the file permissions with Disk Utility and I get the same errors.
I'm running the 32-bit version of OS X and I can not think of any system changes that have occurred that would affect the VPN functionality.
