[SOLVED] Trying to Connect to work Meraki VPN

Postby dcihon » 2020-04-19 12:59

I have a pretty specific question.
I am trying to get my Debian based computer to connect to a Meraki MX100 Firewall Client VPN.
I can connect to it with a Windows Laptop and my iPhone.
It is using L2TP/ipsec with a shared key.
It states this on the configuration page in the Meraki:
Meraki's client VPN solution uses L2TP with IPsec encryption, supported by native clients built into Windows, Android, OS X, and iOS.

Am I just screwed and this is not going to work no matter what I try.
I have not reached out to Meraki yet.
I have the settings configured per the Meraki help pages that I have found.
The error on the Meraki log is this:
msg: phase1 negotiation failed due to time up.

I have researched this error but I don't know what to do.

Thanks for any help I can get.
Dan

Thanks
That last link did it for me.
I needed to install some additional packages to get it working.
Looks like the libstrongswan-standard-plugins libstrongswan-extra-plugins was what I needed.
