Thanks for responding...

Yes it is the preshared key. I tried Googling and looking in the archives
but I didn't see anything or any type of configuration that addresses using
PreShared Keys. Did I miss something and would you be kind to point me in
the right direction?  I posted some earlier stuff but I cant seem to get the
certificates portion to work either.

I deeply appreciate your assistance sir.

Warmest Regards,
