Hello list,

Sorry if this has come up before but I've not searched your archives yet for 
this question and there may be a simple answer. 

Does openswan work with a Watchguard SOHO6 box?

I've tried everything I know so far, including/excluding NAT traversal, it 
nearly works, the tunnel comes up but I cannot get full connectivity no 
matter how hard I try, pings work but reply outside the tunnel, hence I 
cannot establish a telnet session etc.  I cannot get it to work at all with 
my subnet(, only from my my gateway box.

Sometimes the 'up' command reports that NAT traversal is OK, sometimes not, 
with the same CONN'exion parameters.

Any guidance would be helpful here. 

I find it particularly frustrating when I can connect perfectly well using the 
watchguard supplied windows MUVPN client on my laptop but not on my FC6 

Thanks ahead for ANY replies, i can supply conf files and watchguard manual 
vpn settings if required.
