I am trying to get openswan running in my system which is based on ARM CPU. I
get a very peculiar error which states the following message.
“Next payload type of ISAKMP Identification Payload has an unknown value: <XXX>
I did some searching and found that this is related to certain authentication
error, but my keys on both sides are the same. I was getting this message using
RSA keys as well as PSK. I kept a simple secret which is “3333” on both sides
of communication in ipsec.secrets file. I was able to cross-compile the source
smoothly but am stuck in this problem. When I type ipsec auto –up linux-linux,
the exchange proceeds from I1 to I3 and there after I get this message. The
system shows that, it sent I3 and expect MR3 in return but that never occurs
because of this error.
Can anyone tell me what else I can do? I dived into the code and found that
there is a function in_struct in libpluto/packet.c which generates this message
once aft_enum field type is encountered and there is unrecognizable enum value
that is encountered.
Can any body help me? I even cross compiled strongswan to try and see what is
wrong. I kept getting “Unable to allocate SPI from Kernel” message while using
it. I do not know the reason behind that as well since I already have all the
critical modules compiled along with the kernel. Some one please help, since I
have been trying to install this for quite some time now.
