- You cannot have on both sides of the tunnel. How would the gateways
   know to which end to send a packet for ?
- Putting the ipsec gateways in the same subnet ( is not the
   same setup as having them spread across the net somewhere. If you want to do
   real world testing, put a router between them, even if they're all on the
   same switch.
