DH group 15 IPSec tunnel


I must build up an IPSEC tunel between PA and Watchguard XTM. The other Side gives me ike phase where DH Group is 15.


On PA I only can choose Group 1—768 bits, Group 2—1024 bits (default), Group 5—1536 bits, Group 14—2048 bits, Group 19—256-bit elliptic curve group, and Group 20—384-bit elliptic curve group


Is there a way to build up a "custom" DH Group or must the otherside set the DH Group to a value that my PA side can work with?

Hi @clonesheep


You must set the watchguard to something that Paloalto firewalls support.
