  Dear All,

 I try to connect to a Sonicwall TZ180 using Openswan.
 Phase 1 finishes fine. However, phase 2 Quick Mode failes, seems to be stuck:
$ ipsec whack --name hydra --xauthname secret1 --xauthpass secret2 --initiate
002 "hydra" #1: initiating Main Mode
104 "hydra" #1: STATE_MAIN_I1: initiate
003 "hydra" #1: ignoring unknown Vendor ID payload [5b362bc820f70001]

002 "hydra" #1: I did not send a certificate because I do not have one.

031 "hydra" #2: max number of retransmissions (2) reached
STATE_QUICK_I1.  No acceptable response to our first Quick Mode
message: perhaps peer likes no proposal
000 "hydra" #2: starting keying attempt 2 of an unlimited number, but
releasing whack

 Here is the connection configuration:
conn hydra

 I'm able to connect with the SonicWall Global VPN Client. In the
connection detail, it says the followings for Phase 2:
  Protocol: ESP
  Encapsulation mode: UDP Encapsulation Tunnel
  Encryption Algorithm: Triple DES (192-bits)
  Hash Algorithms: HMAC-SHA
  Diffie-Hellman Group: Alternate 1024-bit MODP (Group 2)

 I think the connection configuration matches the above. Could you
please give an advice?
 Thanks in advance,
