I have tried everything I can think of (although I am no expert in this field) to get my VPN setup to work.

I am connecting from a VPN Client to a Netgear FVS318 router. I show a tunnel connection on both the client and the Netgear router, however, no data packets are being transferred.

The fvs318 VPN status shows Phase 1:M-Established / Phase 2: Established and gives me the drop option so I assume some form of connection has been made.

On the FVS side logs I see three messages showing "Discarding Retransmitted Packet..." after the message showing IKE Phase 2 Established.

on the Client side i get:
Received<<<ISAKMP OAK QM*(Retransmission)
SENDING>>>>ISAKMP OAK QM*(Retransmission)
Received<<<ISAKMP OAK QM*(Retransmission)
SENDING>>>>ISAKMP OAK QM*(Retransmission)
Received<<<ISAKMP OAK QM*(Retransmission)
SENDING>>>>ISAKMP OAK QM*(Retransmission)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
