The subnet's we're discussing please double check that this
172.18.112.0/20 Your lan subnet?
172.20.210.48/29 The subnet your connecting to far away?
172.25.8.8/29 The subnet assigned to you by the far away,
Admin to access their lan/subnet?
Which computer is running the openswan setup we've discussed,
Your laptop or your lan internet gateway?
Unfortunately, getting a ipsec (openswan) connection and
Actually getting traffic to flow through it are not always
The same thing, your connection setup appears to be good,
As your getting a connection, so we should not need to change
Any more openswan settings, but we may need to change some
More settings on your openswan box, to allow traffic flow.
Assuming the above subnet descriptions are correct:
You'll need firewall rules to allow the traffic.
Since the connection works, you must already have some rules.
If openswan is on your gateway and assuming eth1 is your public
iptables -t mangle -A INPUT -i eth1 -p esp -j MARK --set-mark 1
iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT -o eth1 -p esp -j MARK --set-mark 1
iptables -t mangle -A INPUT -i eth1 -p udp --dport isakmp -j MARK --set-mark 1
iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT -o eth1 -p udp --sport isakmp -j MARK --set-mark 1
iptables -t mangle -A INPUT -i eth1 -p udp --dport 4500 -j MARK --set-mark 1
iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT -o eth1 -p udp --sport 4500 -j MARK --set-mark 1
iptables -t filter -A INPUT -m mark --mark 1/1 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t filter -A OUTPUT -m mark --mark 1/1 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -m mark --mark 1/1 -j ACCEPT
If openswan is on your laptop then use your lan interface, probably eth0.
This will allow not only the ipsec traffic for the tunnel, but also the
Traffic inside the tunnel, you need to allow both.
You will also need a NAT rule to convert your real ip address(es) to the
Virtual ones assigned by the far away admin for your access.
If openswan is on your gateway and assuming eth0 is your lan interface then use this:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -s <your laptop lan ip> -d 172.20.210.48/29 -j SNAT --to 172.25.8.9
If openswan is on your laptop, then use this:
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -d 172.20.210.48/29 -j SNAT --to 172.25.8.9
When this is done, your should be able to ping/access the remote lan from your laptop.
