PSK IPsec from 5.2 to 6.0 Version

Hello, I´m doing a migration from an box 600C to 100F but I don´t have save any PSK on my IPsec tunnels.

I wonder if there is any way I get theses PSK or copy and paste the Encode PSK from 5.2 version to 6.0.

I did a test copy and paste PSK encode but didn´t work.

any tipe is welcome.

thanks

copy paste will not work becuase the encoding changedsomwhere between 5.2 and 6.0.

What should work ist: first upgrade your current FGT to 6.0 using the recommended upgrade path and then copy paste the tunnels/psks.

He can't, the 600C doesn't upgrade to 6.0. Maybe he could go to the 5.6.12 but i don't know if the encoding would be the same.

 

Starting to agree with emnoc. It's probably be better to rekey these tunnels.

Hello!

 

I did this before, but not with different firmware versions.

 

Using the config file, I copied the line where the psk is, pasted on the fgt ad it worked.

 

You lost the psk on the upgrade? There was a bug that caused that.

I´m doing migration the config by hand because my currently box is an 600C version 5.2 and my new box is an 100F version 6.0.4

Sure, been there too! Another thing you can do, is to download config file of the 600C and extract the  the ipsec tunnel (phase1 and phase2) configuration and then upload it on the 100F(with the necessary adjustments) as a script. Or you can just paste it on a terminal when conected through ssh.

If it 1 or 3  tunnels I would waste any time and just rekey the PSK. I seen a lot of customer who would spend 6 hours trying to recover a key when they could just rekey the PSK on a handful of tunnels and been done.

 

just my 2cts observation

hm his post read like that. I didn't check that in support portal. But if it is like that I agree the best way is to rekey the tunnels.

I can only confirm that an Ipsec Tunnel from 5.6.12 to 6.0.9 works fine. But that don't say anything about encoding on both sides does it ;)
