Thanks a lot friends,

The problem was with the PSK by a typo in the CISCO (stupid situation 
but this are the last check because they was documented before but a 
human error forget one character).

You where correct, but i think the log confused me because they say the 
phase1 ended fine and the PSK is negotiated in this phase. Probably 
because i'm so new in this system i don't interpreted well this info
