I need to decrypt the informational ISAKMP packets sent out after the tunnel is established and running. the final encryption key and the SPI initiator obtained from racoon logs is not decrypting them.

I am able to decrypt the packets ISAKMP fresh packets after a tunnel restart with new set of keys. But for already established state is not working. I have the final encryption key after this initiator SPI is created and it still doesn't work packets generated in an already established tunnel. Is the encryption of these packets any different from those in initial setup phase.

Are these ISAKMP informational packets encrypted with any other key than the final encryption key. ??

below is the packet.

packet time is 10:55:05

can you please let me know how you bought up IPSEC setup with you

if possible can you please send the decrypted sniffer packets of IPSEC

it would much helpful for my work
