Setting up a Preshared Key on SSG140

Hi,

 

I am new to Juniper Firewalls/Netscreen OS.

 

I have been tasked with setting up a site-to-site VPN. I have setup the P1/P2 proposals and AutoKey IKE/Gateway. I need to give the 'other' site our pre-shared key. How can I set one up?

 

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

 

I have followed a similar guide - I guess my understanding is not up to scratch with this.


The screen I input the Pre-shared key is on the IKE Advanced Gateway - I currently think the Pre-shared key required here is Site B's.

 

Any further thoughts.

Yes, that's the correct place.

 

Well ... the key is "preshared," so it's the same for Site A and Site B.

Hi,

 

You need to decide on the preshared key and then will have to securely send it over to the other site.

The preshare key can be any string which suits you, there is no hard rule to generate it.
