I am trying to setup an IPsec tunnel between XP client and FreeBSD box.
Seems the Phase 2 Exchange doesn't work.

My setup:

Windows XP (

ipseccmd -f* -t -n esp[3des,md5] -a preshare:"xxx" -1s 3des-md5-2 -1p

Freebsd (

SPD:[any][any] any
        in ipsec
        spid=7 seq=1 pid=565
        refcnt=1[any][any] any
        out ipsec
        spid=8 seq=0 pid=565

racoon conf:

path pre_shared_key "/usr/local/etc/racoon/psk.txt" ;
 maximum_length 20; # maximum padding length.
 randomize off; # enable randomize length.
 strict_check off; # enable strict check.
 exclusive_tail off; # extract last one octet.

 # These value can be changed per remote node.
 counter 5; # maximum trying count to send.
 interval 20 sec; # maximum interval to resend.
 persend 1; # the number of packets per a send.

 # timer for waiting to complete each phase.
 phase1 90 sec;
 phase2 60 sec;

remote anonymous
 exchange_mode main;
 doi ipsec_doi;
 situation identity_only;

 nonce_size 16;
 lifetime time 4 hour; # sec,min,hour
 initial_contact on;
 support_mip6 on;
 proposal_check obey; # obey, strict or claim

 proposal {
  encryption_algorithm 3des;
  hash_algorithm md5;
  authentication_method pre_shared_key;
  dh_group 2 ;

sainfo anonymous
        pfs_group 1;
        lifetime time 30 sec;
        encryption_algorithm 3des;
        authentication_algorithm hmac_md5;
        compression_algorithm deflate ;

and the racoon dump file (60K) may be too big for the email. looks like the only ERROR lines are:

I don't know why windows send an INVALID-ID-INFORMATION.

Looks like that causes the Quick mode SA establishing fails?

Any suggestion?

Thanks a lot!

(btw, transparent mode XP <-> freebsd and tunnel mode freebsd -> freebsd go pretty well)
