Debug ike basic running LAN to LAN Virtual Private Network (VPN) between remote site and central site Remote site has dynamic IP address on the untrust side IKE Preshared secret VPN not working Main mode negotiations failed ## IKE <> Phase 1: Cannot use a preshared key because the peer gate
way <GW> has a dynamic IP address and negotiations are in Main mode. If using Certificates, Main Mode can be used if Dynamic Gateway is used

If one site obtains the IP address on the untrust side dynamically (either via DHCP or PPPoE), IKE negotiations between the remote site and central site needs to be communicating with aggressive mode when using preshared secret.'  Make sure the side with the dynamic IP is initiating IPSec traffic.
