GRE traffic being dropped somewhere after ESP packet arrived

Thu Mar 17, 2016 12:36 pm

Hello,

I have a pfsense -> mikrotik using ipsec and gre.

I sanitized the public IPs.

I shoot a ping between the tunnel IPs. On pfsense side(172.16.0.1), I have:
(wan traffic)
10:23:32.367083 IP 1.1.1.1 > 2.2.2.2: ESP(spi=0xcdaad2ef,seq=0xd), length 100

On mikrotik side(172.16.0.11, and I took some non related traffic out):

So, do you have any idea where is the GRE reply packet inside mikrotik as the ESP package arrived? :D

Best regards,

Attached the decrypted ESP returning packet showing the ping reply inside. The packet was captured on mikrotik using /tool sniffer/start/stop/save and exported to wireshark. On wireshark I added the encryption and authentication SA keys to decrypt.

I just figured out that GRE packet from pfsense, has 4 extra bytes and is type 0x883e(WCCP). Still not sure how it works, but is there any possibility of mikrotik drop the GRE packet because it doesn't understand?

I found the problem. pfsense has a bug. ifconfig gre0 with LINK2 flag, enable WCCP v2 that add extra 4 bytes to the GRE that mikrotik don't understand.

Even with "WCCP version" unset on pfsense webui, LINK2 stays enabled.
