    E71 Nokia VPN to Cisco VPN 3000

    I am trying to use Nokia VPN client to connect to my company's Cisco VPN Concentrator 3000.
    My company policy requires user authentication after preshared key (group) authentication.
    3DES-MD5 IPsec proposal with DH group 2 with XAUTH is required. No PFS is required.

    I tried to configure Nokia VPN policy by two ways:

    1- With the "Nokia Mobile VPN Client Policy Tool for Microsoft Windows" on page:

    2- The makesis.exe utility supplied in a forum.

    With both methods, I tried to set everything as it should be. But when I try to connect to the VPN , I get a "unable to activate" message after some time.
    In the VPN logs I see the error code : 5258 (which points to "IKE negotiation with gateway failed because there was no acceptable proposal")

    What is it that I am doing wrong ? How can I troubleshoot and solve ?

    I can send my .vpn file to use with the 1st method and/or .pol + .pkg + .pin files to use with the second method if anyone wants to have a look.

    There was an endless thread about VPN policy profiles, just search for vpn, and select the thread with 322 replies. You can read it if you want, and before/after/instead of that you can visit the locations suggested by Nokia Ron in the closing post (http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...&postcount=323)

    ok; thank you. I'll post it to the correct forum.
    Unfortunately even though it seems to be a simple problem I couldn't find enough help anywhere.
    A thread with 322 replies isn't a good place to start with.
