If the tunnel endpoints have a firewall between them, you must configure it to allow the following IP protocols and UDP ports:

IP Protocol ID 50 (ESP)

IP Protocol ID 51 (AH)

UDP Port 500 (IKE)

A routed organization vDC network in each of the organizations. The organization vDC networks must have nonoverlapping IP subnets and site-to-site VPN enabled.
