Default OpenBSD 5.1 ipsec pre-shared key not sending?


I recently managed to configure an IPSEC over GRE tunnel between a Cisco router and OpenBSD 5 RELEASE 64bit edition.

I am now attempting to do the same between OpenBSD 5.1 x64 RELEASE however, the router is complaining that OpenBSD isn't sending the 'pre-shared-key'???

My previous posting for the initial configuration was here:


ipsec.conf file having permissions 600 has this inside it:

ike esp from to peer main auth hmac-md5 enc 3des group modp1536 \
quick auth hmac-md5 enc 3des psk "secret"
the "secret" after "psk" has been put in properly however, for some reason the Cisco is complaining that it isn't being sent?

This is a different router using a different IOS version so that might have something to do with it. though it is unlikely as the configuration of both systems is the same with only the IP addresses and pre-shared-key different.

Outside of /var/log/daemon where does ipsec and isakmp log to?

Can anyone help me out or suggest anything?
