This means both parties have no proposal in common. Usually this means one side
only wants to do X.509 certificates and the other side only wants to do raw RSA
keys, or it means they cannot agree on a certain algorith/cipher. Common is
offering only 1DES to a FreeS/WAN machine, which refuses to talk 1DES because 
it is trivial to brute-force.

You'll have to fix your configurations.
