While I am definitely interested in RRI, I currently have a static route in for my network.  The static route is for the network and it tells the concentrator that the next hop is the concentrator's gateway on its outside interface.  This same concentrator is terminating connections from about 50 cisco routers and we are doing similar static routes for those remote networks as well.  So, I know that what I'm trying to do should work.  The real kicker is that I can remember bi-directional traffic working in the past for my setup, but, I haven't tried it in ages and now it doesn't work.  It might have been working when I was using a 2.4 kernel on the laptop firewall machine?

If you'd like to contact me, off-list, I can run some debugs on my stuff and we can figure out the difference between your setup and mine?  Then we could summarize to the list if we were able to solve it?
