Site 2 Site VPN

L2 Linker

We have a S2S VPN set up with a Juniper SRX at a partner site.

The P1 key life time is 8hr and P2 life time is 1hr


We are seeing that the VPN drops quite frequiently. After they have had a look at the logs they are saying that during the re-key phase our end is timeing out. 


I am not sure how to get debug logs , we run PAN OS 7.1.7


The have provided some logs from their appliance

Can any one point me in the right direction.

Do you allow ipsec traffic from another end to your external interface:




 185.xx.xx.xx:500 (Initiator) my understanding this is SRX interface? If this ip is initiator make sure you allow above app

And (or only) application: ike

Do you have drops in the traffic log between your gw ip and the other side?

Yes I have some dropped traffic comeing from the remote end




What I am unclear of is why does the dest end deemed to be internal , when it is my public IP.

Do I need a new rule to allow this ?


Interesting. I think l had this before (or very similar issue). Can you please make sure to clear all active sessions from the session browser on your box from the external ip address (SRX):




For sure your destination zone should be External ;)

I also had a very similar issue where we had dropped packets when a rekey occured. Maybe you should give 7.1.9 (thats the version where the problem was gone in my case) or 7.1.10 a chance ...

I've noticed this with quite a few ASAs; upgrading to 7.1.9 seems to have fixed the issue for us in our case; before the upgrade I had simply just set the key life to the point where it wouldn't rekey in business hours, kind of a hacky solution but it worked fine until I could upgrade the unit.
