Thanks for your kindly help Paul.  On the WinXP end, I am using SSH Sentinel
1.4, therefore, I don't have the ipsec.conf for you.

Let me clarify a bit, there are totally 3 senerios,

1. The server side ipsec.conf I posted last time work fine with the SSH
Sentinel client when both client and server is directly connected to the
Internet.  And everything works fine after the connect is established, i.e.
can ping, can telnet, etc.

2. When client is hide behind NAT firewall, preshare secret mode can
connect, but cannot even ping.

3. When client is hide behind NAT firewall and using X509 certificate, the
server keep on waiting for MI3 and retransmission of STATE_MAIN_R2.

Thanks a million !!!
