    VPN Connection Error


      I am setting up a firewall in a remote office. I need to have a VPN connection directly to this firewall for management purposes.  I am doing this successfully at our main office but I cannot get it to work on the new firewall.  I am using ShrewSoft for the client. It looks like everything goes through fine intitally but at the end I get an error.  ShrewSoft says the tunnel is up and connected but it never shows that it is established.  I have posted the error below that I see in the audit.  I have tried using just a simple preshared key definition and a single certificate definition (my preference).  I get the exact same error on either one I try.  If anyone has some ideas I sure appreciate it.
