PepLink Balance 20 IPSec To WatchGuard XTM 23


#1

Hello,
I was wondering if any one could possible help me out.
Been trying to figure this out for days.

Watchguard XTM 23 is at the main locations and i need to connect a Peplink Balance 20 using IPSec to it.
I have tried Different combinations but the 2 devices wont connect

Any recommended settingsā€¦ Any one got it to work?

(Besides replacing the Watchguard :stuck_out_tongue: )

Watchguard XTM 23 Firmware 11.6.1
Peplink Balance 20 Firmware 6.1.2

Thank you for readingā€¦

Hello,

Are there any error messages at all?

I would ensure that the settings are correct on both ends.

Some things to look for:

Main Mode or Aggressive mode

-Use Main Mode if there are Public IPs on both terminating ends, remote/local id fields can be left blank if using Main Mode.

-Use Aggressive Mode if there is only one end that has a public IP. Local and Remote IDs will need to be entered in the format below (names can be changed but ā€œ@ā€ symbol is required).

Peplink Settings:

Local ID: Peplink@Watchguard
Remote ID: Watchguard@Peplink

Watchguard Settings:

Local ID: Watchguard@Peplink
Remote ID: Peplink@Watchguard

Also, ensure encryption methods are the same on either end and LAN Networks are unique.

I actually Found the convoluted setting on the Watchguard which was messing up the connection.
Will put up a basic Guide for everyone out there. Later in the day

Thanks in advance!
