Hi All,

I have successfully established a VPN tunnel between Openswan and Cisco PIX 
. The network is like (the addresses are not real):

While I am able to ping a remote machine  from a local machine, the pings from the Openswan gateway machine (private ip don't work (I guess the reason is that this machine 
communicates with the remote gateway using its public ip address 
( and they only allow private addresses).
Basically I want to run an application right on the gateway machine that 
connects to a machine (say protected by the remote VPN device. 
Is it possible???

Any help how to achieve this will be greatly appreciated. Pardon my 
ignorance if I am asking about something horrible as I am new to this Linux 
and VPN world.
