    retry timeout - timeout is a non-response after a selected time. retry happens after the initial access does not get a response.

    Did not receive response - what it says.

    Contact the other end to see what is going on here. The other end is not responding to the BOVPN IKE packets from XTM.

    Hi, could you please explain reason of last line Critical Error! - could not locate the IN and OUT SPSAItems, same error for me. What does it means?
    how I can debug it on WG or in other end? Thanks

    Most likely:
    SP = Security Policies
    SA = Security Associations

    Verify that the Phase 2 setting match at each end.

    If you have not done so already, you can turn on diagnostic logging for IKE which may show something to help:
    In WSM Policy Manager: Setup -> Logging -> Diagnostic Log Level -> VPN -> IKE
    In the Web UI: System -> Diagnostic Log
    Set the slider to Information or higher

    Besides Diagnostic Logging, you have 2 other options when the session is trying to connect, and you should see something to help understand this.

    1) Web UI -> System Status -> VPN Statistics, click the Debug button
    2) in FSM -> Traffic Monitor -> right click -> Diagnostic Tasks -> VPN tab
