Ipsec vpn

I am trying to test the IPSEC VPN and I cannot seem to get it to work.

Trying with 2 380s.

Same settings on both sides.

Same shared key of course.

Specified eachother’s IP addresses and networks just like I would do for other vendor VPN solutions.

The tunnel never gets created and just says Connecting on both sides.

What are the pre-requisites?

Can I have both IPSEC and Site to Site VPNS created together?

Where is the documentation on this?

Hello Marc,

Thank you for your inquiry. Now if you are talking about having the same Peplink have both an IPSEC and a Peplink Site-to-Site to different units (1 Peplink to 2 different boxes w/the different VPNs), this should not be a problem.

In regards to your issues creating the IPSEC VPN, let’s have you create a support ticket and we can dig further into the issues at hand at the following link-


Thank you again for your patience in this matter Marc.

Best Regards,


The Peplink Team
