Password hash

Is it normal for the same password on two different boxes to have a different hash?

The password is the same and works but the hash shows up differently in the configuration.

How could that be used here? This is a Symmetric-key algorithm, so both peers have to know the psk as its salted hash would be different on each peer !

Correct. This can be easily confirmed on security gateways via vpn dump_psk
