  • IPsec
  • proxy id
  • Route-based VPN
  • Proxy-ID configured manually
  • Address book entries configured
  • Phase 1 successful

Symptoms & Errors:

  • Phase 2 failing with a Proxy ID mismatch
  • No policy exist for the Proxy ID

The Firewall Event Log Message will list the Local ID, Remote ID, Protocol Number, and Port Number.  These are the definitions of those fields:
The Local ID is the encryption domain the remote client is trying to connect to.
The Remote ID is the internal address of the remote client that is trying to connect.
<0>,<0> = Indicates the Protocol and Port Number .

Verify that the address book entry is correct and make sure the Proxy ID's match from one gateway to the other (i.e. local proxy id matches with peer's remote proxy id, and vice versa).  See the image.
