[Openswan Users] Can ping, but can't do anything else

OK, at least I'm not the only one with this problem. I've found this in the
mailing list:

It's from P, ipsec at dogclan.com .


Anyone with an answer?


The tunnels come up and I can ping across the vpn with no problem.  I 
can ping from a client machine to another client, ect.  But that's it.  
I can do anthing else.  Cant access shares, can't connect via remote 
desktop, can't connect to another remote admin program I've installed 
for testing, can't connect to a mail server that's on the other side of 
the vpn.  It seems the only thing I can do is ping.  I'm not getting any 
firewall hits if I watch /var/log/messages while trying to use any of 
the previously mentions apps so I'm sure it's not firewall stopping it.  
I've tried running the app from subnet 1 and run tcpdump on eth1 on 
gateway 2 and I see the packets going across that interface.  At this 
point I'm pretty stumped.



Anyone with an answer?

I've sent this mail to the list, but no one reply'ed it. Can anyone help me?

I've been working on this for weeks now, and i'm getting desperate!




I've found something quite strange with tcpdump.


using tcpdump in the eth0, the one that connects to the router, i found out
that when i ping the remote host, i can see the (at lesat i think it is) ESP
packets going, but the reply packets come in the clear, marked with icmp


Is this normal?


The strange thing is that icmp works no matter what routing setup i test,
but nothing else works. I really need to use windows machines, and i have a
big problem on my hands.....
