VIA XAuth failure

Anyone seen a VIA user failed authentication with an message of "IKE XAuth failed for "?

User was able to authenticate, download the VIA client and, successfully pull the VIA_0/{Controller} Connection Profile. Subsequent connections fail.

Re: VIA XAuth failure

you need to set a "dummy" IKE shared secret in your vpn settings on the controller.

Configuration> Advanced> VPN Services> IKE shared Secret. Click on add, to add any IKE shared secret.

Re: VIA XAuth failure

This is probably worth opening a TAC case. I would suspect it's just a configuration error, but we really need to see the entire config file to be sure. I suspect you probably don't want to post the entire thing on a public forum. :)

Also, VIA can generate logs with the "Send logs" button. This will be very useful in troubleshooting problems.
