Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If the local device functions as the initiator, run the remote-name command. Because both ends may be the initiator, run the remote-name command at both ends. The remote-name command is optional only when the IKE peer functions as the responder and uses an IPSec policy template to establish an IPSec policy.


In IKEv1, when local-id-type name is used, the local and remote names are used for IKE negotiation.

In IKEv2, when peer-id-type name is used, the remote name is used for IKE negotiation.
