IKE phase1 authentication fail as peer's certificate is not verified from forticlient logs

Hello, I'm new at this so be patient with me.

 

I'm unable to connect to my network remotely via IPsec VPN - I can connect on first PC - however unable to connect via second PC. I checked the client configuration on working PC and matched on PC that isn't connecting.

 

From my forticlient that isn't connecting via IPsec VPN

Hi @jakecle67,

 

Are you using certificate for authentication? Are you connecting from 2 PCs at the same time using the same account?

Hello. I'm not using certificates for my authentication. I'm using a username and password. I'm not connecting from 2 PCs at the same time.

Can you double-check? On the FortiGate, in its config ideally.

The logs metion XAUTH and aggressive mode, so presumably this is IKEv1. And in IKEv1, the username+password authentication done in XAUTH is precedent by PSK-, or certificate-, based authentication in phase1.

[ corrections always welcome ]

@jakecle67,

 

Do you have peer ID configured on the FortiGate? Since it is working on one PC but not another, it could be a client issue. Both PCs are using the same FortiClient version? 

 

On FortiClient, you can try to reenter the PSK. If it doesn't help, try deleting and creating a new VPN connection.
