You are trying to open a VPN tunnel and you are experiencing the following error:


Error VPN086: "received remote ID other than expected" (Remote ID mismatch).

The message "received remote ID other than expected" was received. It means the Remote ID value doesn't match the value expected by the remote VPN endpoint (gateway/peer).

Console message example:
20090429 120351 Default (SA Cnx-P1) SEND phase 1 Main Mode [ID][HASH][NOTIFY]
20090429 120351 Default (SA Cnx-P1) RECV phase 1 Main Mode [ID][HASH][NOTIFY]
20090429 120351 Default ike_phase_1_recv_ID: received remote ID other than expected

You may:
  • Check the value "Local ID" in "Phase 1 Advanced" to be consistent with the remote ID of the VPN gateway or peer.
    Warning: the remote ID on the router is the local ID on the VPN Client and conversely !
