The remote peer can start the tunnel successfully when accessing my local network like pinging a local host, however, the tunnel cannot be automatically started from the local side.

The log shows no signs of starting VPN tunnel when I trying to access the remote network.

Does anybody encountered this situation?


Probably a config mismatch between the peers. Both phase 1 and phase 2 parameters, as the SA lifetime, and also the ACLs (in a reverse way) must match.
