Default [FVS318N] VPN Traffic Selection on subnets smaller than /24


I'm configuring a FVS318N device which I'm going to send to our remote site soon. It is going to communicate with our main SRX-5308 through a VPN tunnel.

This is the setup:

Site 1: (SRX-5308)
Site 2: (FVS318N)

I have created a Site-to-Site VPN tunnel on both routers with the VPN Policy Wizard. On the SRX-5308, the VPN policy were created fine with:


But on the FVS318N, the .32 in the Local field keeps resetting to .0!


I've tried editing the Local Subnet in the VPN policy, but it doesn't matter what I enter, the last numbers are always changed to 0 when i hit Apply. I've tried recreating the policy from scratch, but that doesn't help either.

I haven't been able to test this over a WAN link yet, so I don't know if it will work - but I get the feeling that if I want to communicate with the .32/27 net it shouldn't say .0/27 in the config.

Am I or the router doing something wrong?

both end must be different subnet
