An administrator is creating an IPsec site-to-site VPN between his corporate office and branch office. Both
offices are protected by Check Point Security Gateway managed by the same Security Management Server.
While configuring the VPN community to specify the pre-shared secret the administrator found that the check
box to enable pre-shared secret is shared and cannot be enabled. Why does it not allow him to specify the preshared secret?
IPsec VPN blade should be enabled on both Security Gateway.
Pre-shared can only be used while creating a VPN between a third party vendor and Check Point Security
Certificate based Authentication is the only authentication method available between two Security Gateway
managed by the same SMS.
The Security Gateways are pre-R75.40.
