Cisco Site to Site VPN

Hi there, we have a Cisco device on our side where I have setup a Site to Site VPN using the .cfg file downloaded from "Azure Networks" and I can get it connecting without a problem.  The problem is that we have XAuth enabled on our router for second level authentication when our users are connecting via their Cisco client.  As soon as I enable XAuth using this command (crypto map cm-cryptomap client authentication list userlist) my Azure VPN gets terminated.

I was wondering if anyone had any way around this so my Cisco client users are still requested for second level authentication but the Azure Site to Site VPN is not.

I have actually been able to resolve this.

My problem was that the crypto isakmp command needed to have "no-xauth" on the end.  So the full command should be as follows:

crypto isakmp key [pre shared key] address [ip address] no-xauth
