Non Meraki VPN Peer (Closing Child_SA)



I've non meraki vpn peers connected to branch non meraki device VPN. 


Sometimes I can't ping remote IP. When I checked the logs it said : 

msg: <remote-peer-2|190> closing CHILD_SA net-2-1{1973} with SPIs ccf831e8(inbound) (312 bytes) 49631dcf(outbound) (0 bytes) and TS ip_local === ip_remote


ip_local = my corporate ip subnet, eg.

ip_remote = my branch subnet, e.g.


As the result, I can't ping to any ip subnet under 


What happened ? Is this because my router is behind the NAT or it had to do with the internet connection ?

Kind of a big deal

"closing CHILD_SA" means the VPN is being terminated.  You would need to look above that for a possible reason.
